A9 crash driver dies of injuries

A 62-year-old man has died after being injured in a crash involving a lorry and two vans on the A9.

Frederick Mollon, from Uddingston, Glasgow, was airlifted to hospital after the collision, which took place at about 1410 GMT on Wednesday.

Mr Mollon was driving a white box van which was involved in a collision with another white box van and a white articulated lorry at Garry Bridge.

No-one else was injured in the incident, police said.

Tayside Fire Service sent four fire engines and a heavy rescue unit to the scene and firefighters had to cut Mr Mollon out of his vehicle.

He was flown to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, but died at about 2200 GMT.

The road was closed in both directions following the crash to enable officers to investigate.

A Tayside Police spokesman said: "Inquiries into the full set of circumstances surrounding the incident continue today and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal in due course."

Police have appealed for witnesses to contact them.
