At least one casualty involved in a serious road accident on the A9 between Carrbridge and Slochd has been airlifted to hospital in Inverness.
The incident near the junction to Carrbridge involving a Mitsubishi Outlander and a Fiat 500 caused the A9 to be closed in both directions.
Police were called to the scene shortly after 2pm yesterday and then paged the fire service which sent three appliances.
They set to work stabilising the vehicles and cutting equipment was used to free those trapped in the vehicles.
A police spokesman said: “The road remains closed but the injuries at this stage look serious but not life-threatening. The air ambulance has attended and one of the casualties was flown to Raigmore Hospital.”
Traffic Scotland’s website advised that “A9 between Slochd and Carrbridge – Road is closed due to a road traffic incident. Motorists are advised to use an alternative route.”
