Police name man after three-vehicle pile-up on A9

A man who died in a crash involving three vehicles on the A9 has been named as Kenneth Nicolson from Inverness.

The 77-year-old's car was in collision with a van and another car, just north of Calvine in Perthshire, at about 1345 GMT on Thursday.

A 52-year-old van driver was taken to hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

Police said the 51-year-old female driver of the other car did not need treatment.

Tayside Police said the road was closed for more than five hours after the crash and appealed for witnesses.

The crash happened on a single-carriageway stretch of the A9, just a few miles from a collision on 3 March involving a lorry and two vans.

Sixty-two-year-old Frederick Mollon, from Glasgow, was airlifted to hospital after last week's crash, but died later that day.
