Two injured as police stress need for responsible motoring in Moray

Two people had to be taken for treatment to Dr Gray’s in Elgin following an accident on the A96 on Wednesday afternoon.

A school bus operated by D&E Coaches was involved in a collision with a Riverside Kitchens van two miles west of Brodie on the main Aberdeen to Inverness route.

Police were notified of the accident at around 4.10pm – fortunately there were no passengers on the bus, although two people involved did suffer injuries.

The accident came as police were stressing that motorists should take extra care and note high winds and icy roads continue to affect the region as well as their being additional traffic in the run up to Christmas.

This week police in Moray revealed that there would be additional officers on duty as part of the ‘safer streets’ festive campaign. Chief Inspector Willie Findlay said: “Remember your responsibilities to yourself and others.

“Make arrangements to get home safely and remember to bear in mind the lower drink driving limit. There will be extra police patrols but we want people to take responsibility for their own actions and make sure they get home safely.

“The simplest rule is if you are driving, don’t drink.”
