Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE - Chris Marzella

Two peo­ple were taken to hos­pi­tal fol­low­ing a three­ve­hi­cle crash on the A9 last week.

Emer­gency ser­vices were called to the in­ci­dent on the A9, be­tween Dun­blane and Green­loan­ing, at around 3pm on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 9.

The crash in­volved two lor­ries and a car and was at­tended by the po­lice, Scot­tish Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice (SFRS) and the Scot­tish Am­bu­lance Ser­vice.

A Scot­tish Am­bu­lance Ser­vice spokesper­son said: “We dis­patched three am­bu­lances, two spe­cial op­er­a­tions teams and one man­ager to the scene.

“Two pa­tients were taken to Forth Val­ley Royal Hos­pi­tal.”

Three fire en­gines were on the scene. A SFRS spokes­woman said: “Three ca­su­al­ties had ex­ited the ve­hi­cles prior to the ar­rival of fire­fight­ers and were treated at the scene by the Scot­tish Am­bu­lance Ser­vice.

“SFRS crews sta­bilised the ve­hi­cles and made the area safe be­fore leav­ing the scene.”

It’s be­lieved that the three ca­su­al­ties sus­tained mi­nor in­juries.

Traffic was backed up for sev­eral miles be­fore the road was fi­nally cleared at 6pm.
