The BBC understands that one person has been seriously injured. The Scottish Ambulance Service said a trauma team had been sent to the scene.

The road has been closed.

A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "We received a call at 14:49 today to attend a road traffic incident on the A82 near Aldochlay.
