A9 partially clear near Cromarty Bridge following earlier crash; Police Scotland confirmed drivers taken to hospital in Inverness with non life-threatening injuries
TWO drivers were taken to hospital today after a car and van collided on the A9 just south of Cromarty Bridge.
Police Scotland said the pair’s injuries were not believed to be life-threatening and no-one else was involved.
Emergency services were called at 11.45 am, with one lane at the B9163 junction fully blocked for a number of hours.
The road is now partially cleared, with a black Toyota Rav car and white Vauxhall Combo van transported from the scene.
Tailbacks remain, with delays of up to 10 minutes reported on the route.
A police spokesman said: “There was one car in the middle lane and one on the verge. An ambulance attended and the two drivers were taken to hospital.
“Their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening. A garage attended to remove the vehicles.”
A Fire Brigade spokeswoman said two engines attended the crash after reports a vehicle was on fire, but were not required at the scene.
