A young child was among five people injured  this afternoon following a serious two vehicle crash on the A86 near Moy Lodge.

The two vehicle collision occurred around 11.20am, West of Arduerikie, sparking a major response from emergency services across the north.

The collision involving a Vauxhall Passat and a Nissan Micra left one casualty seriously injured and four others injured.

Emergency services descended on the devastating scene after officers from police Scotland received the initial call at 11.26am, following reports of a two vehicle road traffic collision.

The fire services were later requested at 11.39am, dispatching three appliances from Aviemore and Kingussie, to help in the rescue efforts.

Upon arrival, firefighters extracted one casualty from a vehicle before transferring them into the hands of on scene paramedics.

A total of three ambulances were on the scene transporting a number of injured casualties to Raigmore Hospital, meanwhile, one seriously injured casualty was airlifted from the scene and taken by air ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow for further treatment. His condition remains unknown.

A spokesman from the ambulance service said: “We received a call today to attend a road traffic collision in Roybridge.

“We dispatched three ambulances, a manager, a team leader, our trauma team and an air ambulance to the scene. Three adults and a child patient were transported to Raigmore Hospital while one patient was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth.”

The road remained closed for some time as police officers remained at the scene.

Police officers requested for the casualty vehicles to be recovered at 4.45pm, following the transportation of all injured parties to hospital.

Firefighters remained at the scene until 1.07pm, with the last appliance reported to have left the scene at 2.15pm.

Councillor Allan Henderson for Caol and Mallaig said: “It’s one of these things but it’s an unfortunate thing that will happen on the roads that are bust at this time of year. It’s completely disruptive to the people involved and people in the wider community. I understand the necessity for investigations to take place; I understand the reason for it but it’s a total disruption unfortunately for all concerned.

“This is a terrible thing that has happened and I hope everyone will recover fully from this incident.”
