Three in hospital after A9 crash

A French woman had to be cut free from her car following a collision with a campervan on the A9 in Perthshire, police have said.

The woman passenger, 51, was taken to hospital after being seriously injured in the collision at 1110 BST.

Her condition is not believed to be life threatening. The 51-year-old male driver of the silver Opel Meriva - also a French national - was uninjured.

Two people travelling in the campervan are also in hospital.

Tayside Police said the woman had suffered leg and chest injuries. She was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee after being treated at the scene by paramedics.

A force spokesman added: "A 67-year-old man who was driving the white Ford Transit camper van is understood to have sustained a cracked sternum, while a seven-year-old girl, who was a passenger in the vehicle, is believed to have broken bones in her foot.

"They were taken to Perth Royal Infirmary. A 67-year-old woman who was also in the van was unhurt.

"All three are understood to be from the west of Scotland."

The road was closed following the incident but has now reopened. Police have appealed to witnesses to contact them.
