Motorist crashes into tree on A199 in East Lothian

An East Lothian road is closed in both directions after an elderly motorist crossed into the opposite carriageway and crashed into a tree.

It is thought the 80-year-old man suffered a medical condition at the wheel which caused him to lose control of his car on the A199 near Haddington.

The accident happened at 14:45 just past Monksmuir Caravan Park on the old A1, heading towards East Linton.

He is being cut out of the vehicle by the emergency services.
