Lorry crash closes A82
TWO LORRIES collided on the A82 at Onich last Thursday, closing both lanes of the carriageway for more than four hours.
No other vehicles were involved, and no- one was injured, Police Scotland said.
Inspector Isla Campbell, area inspector for Lochaber, added: ‘ At about 10am on Thursday March 30, officers were called to a report of a collision between two large goods vehicles on the A82 just south of Onich.
‘A large piece of plant machinery being carried by one of the lorries shifted and came into contact with a second lorry travelling in the opposite direction.
‘As a result, the road was closed for four-and-a-half hours while the plant was safely adjusted, the lorries moved and the road cleansed. During this period, when possible and safe to do so, officers allowed traffic to pass.
‘The 60-year- old driver of one of the lorries has been reported to the procurator fiscal for road traffic offences.’
