Two taken to hospital after car and motorbike crash

Police were called to the scene on the A95 near Marypark.

Two people have been taken to hospital after a 4×4 rolled on a Moray road.

Earth and debris was thrown across the A95 Keith to Grantown road near Aberlour yesterday after a blue Mitsubishi Shogun went off the carriageway.

The windscreen of the vehicle was smashed and the bonnet crumpled due to the impact with an embankment at Marypark.

Two men were taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin with minor injures following the incident that happened shortly after 2pm.

The car, which was travelling south towards Grantown, spun after leaving the road before coming to rest on its wheels.

Tufts of grass became embedded in the front of the vehicle as it went out of control on the busy trunk route, which is known as the Whisky Highway.

It is understood the 4×4 veered off the road to avoid traffic overtaking vehicles travelling in the opposite direction. Police confirmed a motorbike was also involved in the incident.

Police and ambulance crews were called to the scene as emergency crews marshalled traffic and provided medical assistance.

Recovery crews later arrived to remove the Mitsubishi, which also had damage on its front bumper and roof, from the scene.

A police spokeswoman said: “We got a call at 2.25pm. A car and a motorbike were involved. There were no serious injuries. Two men were taken to hospital with cuts and bruises. The road was

not closed.”
