Blizzard pile-up closes A9
The main arterial route to the Highlands was closed for hours last night after a three vehicle pile-up in blizzard conditions.
The snowgates at either end of the notorious Drumochter Pass on the A9 Inverness to Perth road were shut after the incident involving a snow plough, a lorry and a car.
No one was badly injured but the accident, between Wade Bridge and Dalnacardoch Lodge, brought the trunk road to a standstill as agencies struggled to recover the large vehicles and clear the route of snow.
