Trapped woman cut free from car and taken to ARI
A WOMAN was taken to hospital after a two-car crash on a North-east road today. The smash happened on the Blackburn to Clinterty route at around 6.30am.
The road was closed while the vehicles were blocking it. The route reopened at around 8.30am after the vehicles – a white Fiat 500 and a grey BMW – were recovered. The female driver of the Fiat 500 was taken to hospital.
A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said: “It was at the junction with Broombank. It was a two-car crash, and a female was trapped. Crews used cutting gear, and police and the ambulance service were also in attendance. We sent two appliances and nine firefighters to the scene.” A Police Scotland spokesman added: “We were in attendance at a road traffic accident, it was on the back road from Blackburn to Clinterty. The vehicles were recovered and one woman was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with non life-threatening injuries.”
