Investigations Into Serious A9 Road Traffic Collisions Continue

Two Separate Incidents On Road Raise Concerns

09.01.2014

Police are continuing to investigate following two separate serious road traffic collisions on the A9 in Scotland in recent weeks.

Five people have been taken to hospital by helicopter and ambulance following a crash on the road near the Cairngorms National Park just after midnight this morning (8 January) involving a car and lorry.

Three victims were taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee following the incident, while the other two were taken to Raigmore Hospitals in Inverness. The road was closed for almost nine hours following the incident.

News of the crash came after it was confirmed that a cyclist involved in an apparent collision with a coach on the A9 on the outskirts of Perth on 30 December had died in hospital.

The 51-year-old man suffered a serious head injury and Police Scotland have appealed for witnesses to come forward, while a report is also expected to be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
