Lorry crash closes A82

The Oban Times - - News -

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.’

Last Thurs­day’s lorry crash closed the A82 just south of Onich for four and a half hours.
