THREE MOTORISTS HAD to be cut free from their vehicle following a road accident on the A96 in Moray last night.

The collision between a white Fiesta and a blue Ford Focus took place to the east of Forres at the Califer Hill viewpoint junction at 6.20pm.

A man and a woman were left trapped in the front seats of the Focus while a woman was also in the back of the car. The road was closed for a period as firefighters worked on freeing them to allow treatment to be administered by paramedics.

All three are understood to have been taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin with a police spokesman saying that their condition was not thought to be life-threatening.

A spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: “Three people were released from one of the cars using hydraulic cutting gear and were passed on to the ambulance service.”

The road was reopened to traffic shortly after 8pm.
