Two in hos­pi­tal af­ter car hits tree

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen) - - NEWS -

Two peo­ple were in hos­pi­tal last night af­ter a ve­hi­cle went off a north­east road and smashed into a tree.

Emer­gency ser­vices were called to the A90 Aberdeen to Dundee road at Stra­cathro at 1.20pm fol­low­ing reports of a col­li­sion.

And they ar­rived to find out that a grey MG ZR had gone off the road and struck a tree.

The fire ser­vice used cut­ting gear to take a man and a woman out of the ve­hi­cle and they were trans­ported to Ninewells Hos­pi­tal in Dundee.

Po­lice did not re­veal the con­di­tion of the two peo­ple.

Emer­gency work­ers were crowded around the scene as the man­gled wreck­age of the car was lifted out of the ditch by a crane yes­ter­day evening, so it could be taken away by a re­cov­ery ve­hi­cle.

The road was closed for more than five hours in the north­bound di­rec­tion at the Edzell junc­tion, while po­lice car­ried out in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the in­ci­dent.

The col­li­sion caused ma­jor dam­age to the ve­hi­cle and the roof had to be re­moved.

A po­lice spokesman said: “We were called at 1.20pm to a one-ve­hi­cle crash. Two peo­ple were taken to Ninewells Hos­pi­tal. The road was closed in a north­bound di­rec­tion while we car­ried out in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

“The road was even­tu­ally re­opened at 6.30pm.”

A fire ser­vice spokes­woman said: “We re­ceived a call to an RTC, which in­volved one ve­hi­cle.

“Two per­sons were trapped and re­moved by the fire ser­vice.”

The fire crew left the scene at 3.30pm.
