A man has been taken to hospital by helicopter after a serious road accident in Argyll.

The car he was travelling in was involved in a crash with a van on the A816 Lochgilphead to Oban road this afternoon. The road is still closed and police expect it to remain closed for a number of hours.

Police, fire and ambulance crews were called to the scene at the bends between Ardfern and Craobh Haven at 1.40pm.

A spokesman for the fire service said: “We received a call reporting a man trapped in a car north of Lochgilphead at 1.40pm. The local crews were mobilised from Lochgilphead, Tarbert and Ardfern.

“The units arrived at 2.10pm, police and ambulance were also in attendance. There had been a collision between a car and a van which resulted in a man being trapped in his car.

“Fire fighters assisted ambulance personnel in removing the casualty from the vehicle. The man was taken by air ambulance to the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow.

“A second man, from the van, appeared to sustain superficial injuries and was taken to hospital by car.”
