A Highland road was closed for several hours yesterday after a fuel tanker crashed through a wall.
The A834 in Ross-shire was shut at Jamestown for around 10 hours between Strathpeffer and Contin.
A police spokesman said the operation to recover the lorry was complex, as it required two vehicles to lift the large vehicle.
A JCB, a recovery vehicle and two fire engines were involved in the effort, he said.
There was an eight foot drop into the field on the other side of the wall.
Police received the call at 11.05am.
A spokesman said: “The driver was taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness. He is not believed to be seriously injured.
“The road was closed for several hours pending recovery of the vehicle. It took some time because they had to lift it up onto the road, get it cleared up then get another lorry to come in and lift the vehicle.”
A spokeswoman for the fire service said that two engines from Dingwall attended and cleared some spilled fuel from the road.
There was further disruption on Highland roads after two cars crashed on the A96 at the Tesco roundabout in Inverness at lunchtime.
The collision took place at around 1pm and caused congestion. No-one was seriously hurt in the incident and the fire and ambulance services were not required.
