Police have attended a five-vehicle pile-up on a city centre road this afternoon.
In what has been referred to as a “rubbernecking” incident, three vehicles crashed into each other whilst driving past an earlier two-vehicle collision.
The collisions happened on Aberdeen’s South College Street, near to the railway arches on Palmerston Road.
Firstly two vehicles crashed at around 3.30pm and then the second three-vehicle crash occurred at around 5.30pm.
A police spokesman said the second incident, “for want of a better word” would be called “rubber-necking”. He added: “The ambulance service attended the first crash as one person had been complaining of chest pains, but it is believed this was due to them being asthmatic and they were not transferred to hospital.
“The second crash involved three vehicles slowing down to look at the initial incident. No vehicles suffered major damage and there were no injuries.
“The road was obstructed for a short time, but remained open to traffic.”
