Ac­ci­dent closes A9 in Perthshire

The Courier & Advertiser (Dundee Edition) - - NEWS -

The A9 was closed in both direc­tions for more than an hour due to an ac­ci­dent near the Her­mitage, Dunkeld, yes­ter­day.

The ac­ci­dent, which hap­pened shortly af­ter 2pm, ini­tially closed both north­bound and south­bound car­riage­ways.

At 3.15pm Traf­fic Scot­land said that the south­bound car­riage­way had re­opened, and the north­bound lane was cleared by 3.50pm.

Police Scot­land said three cars were in­volved.

They con­firmed that one per­son was in­jured though the ex­tent of their in­juries was not known.

The fire and res­cue ser­vice said they were not in­volved in the in­ci­dent but there was con­sid­er­able de­bris on the road which re­quired to be re­moved be­fore the route was fully re­opened.

Traf­fic was di­verted away from the scene and there were some de­lays to mo­torists.
