One person has been cut free from a vehicle on the busiest road through the Mearns following a crash.

Two cars collided on the A90 Dundee to Aberdeen road near North Water Bridge – at the border between Angus and Aberdeenshire – at about 4pm.

Police, firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene.

Two men suffered minor injuries in the crash.

A third person was cut free from one of the vehicles by firefighters. Their condition is not currently known.

Fire and rescue teams used hydraulic cutting gear, a hose reel jet, small tools and a trauma bag on arrival

The road is closed southbound.

A fire and rescue spokeswoman said three appliances – two from Brechin and one from Laurencekirk – were sent to the scene.

She added: “We sent three appliances. The call came in at 3.59pm and the stop message came in at 5.12pm.”

A police spokeswoman said: “Two men suffered minor injuries. A third is being cut free from the car. The road is closed at present.”

A diversion is in place via the A937 Laurencekirk to Marykirk road.

Traffic Scotland warned motorists to “expect delays”.

The organisation posted: “The A90 Southbound is closed at Laurencekirk due to a road traffic incident.

“Motorists are advised to use an alternative route at this time and allow extra time for their journey.”
