Woman escapes with minor injuries after being cut free from car

A woman motorist had an amazing escape after having to be cut free from her car after an accident on the A96 near Forres on Friday afternoon.

Fire and Rescue crews were called from Elgin and Forres after a three-vehicle collision on the road at the junction with Kintessack at the Findhorn Bridge.

The accident happened around 1pm when a Blue Mazda collided with a black Subaru that had been waiting to turn right at the junction, where a tractor was preparing to join the road.

A police spokesman said: “The female driver of the Mazda was taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital as a precaution, while the Subaru driver suffered only minor injuries.”

The Mazda driver was thought to have suffered minor back and pelvic injuries after being cut free from her wrecked vehicle.

The tractor was being driven by local farmer Davie Nicholson, who walked away from the accident uninjured before assisting in clearing up the wreckage.

While there were long tailbacks on the road as a result of the accident it remained open as members of the public and emergency services cleared debris.

The junction where the accident happened has been described by local people as being particularly dangerous.
