Drivers taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness after crash on A9 near Cromarty Bridge; Police Scotland said injuries not believed to be life-threatening
TWO drivers were taken to hospital today after a two-vehicle smash 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 notified at 11.45 am today (Friday), with one lane at the B9163 junction blocked for a number of hours.
Speaking at around 1.40pm, a police spokesman said: “There is one car in the middle lane and one is on the verge. An ambulance attended and the two drivers were taken to hospital.
“Their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
"The lane still appears to be blocked and a garage is attending 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.
