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.”
