Three in hospital following second accident near Craigellachie

MOTORISTS ARE BEING URGED to take particular care at a busy junction on the main route south from Moray after a second serious accident led to three people being taken to hospital.

Police were joined by two Ambulance crews and a Fire and Rescue service unit on the A941 at its junction with the A95 at Craigellachie on Monday.

The road was blocked for several hours after a white delivery van was involved in a collision with a grey Mercedes car – thought to have been driven by holidaymakers.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman confirmed that three people were taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin, saying: “Officers received a call at around 1.15pm – Fire and Rescue and Paramedics were in attendance.

“One driver was taken to hospital with whiplash, another driver and passenger were also taken to hospital as a precaution.”

An accident on the same spot towards the end of last month resulted in two people having to be cut free and taken to hospital with broken bones.
