Three Men Seriously Injured In A9 Crash

Expert Calls For Answers Over Major Collision


Serious injury experts at Irwin Mitchell have called for police to work quickly to investigate another major crash on A9, which this time left three people hurt.

The road traffic collision is thought to have happened near to Golspie late on Saturday night (July 9th), with the men being hospitalised in Inverness and the road closed overnight while experts examined the scene.

Reports have revealed that those involved suffered serious injuries in the crash, while they also had to be cut free from the vehicle they were travelling in.

David Bell, a serious injury specialist at Irwin Mitchell’s Glasgow office who acts for a number of people hurt in road traffic collisions and other similar incidents, said it is clear answers were needed over the crash.

He said: “Incidents on the road can have devastating impact on people’s lives and many of those we represent have had their lives turned upside down after suffering serious spinal and head injuries in car crashes.

“For the sake of those involved, it is vital that police work quickly and thoroughly to consider events in relation to this incident and take every necessary step to discover whether it could and should have been prevented.

“What is particularly concerning is that it has occurred around a week after two men were killed and another seriously injured in a crash on the A9 close to Kingussie.

“It is incredibly important that lessons are learnt from incidents like this if we are to see an improvement in standards of safety on the road and reduce the number of serious injuries suffered by motorists.”
