A woman has died following a crash in Moray.
Three vehicles – a red Audi A3, a white Ford transit van and a grey Peugeot 2008 – collided on the A96 between Fochabers and Keith at 8.35am.
The driver and passenger of the Ford Transit as well as the driver of the Audi motorcar were conveyed to hospital by ambulance suffering from minor injuries.
The road was closed while emergency services dealt with the incident and an investigation is being carried out.
Two fire crews also attended the scene. A spokeswoman said: “We received the call at 8.44am and sent two appliances from Fochabers and Keith.
“We used hydraulic cutting equipment and freed a person.”
Sergeant Scott Deans, from the North East Road Policing Unit, said: “The road will remain closed in both directions while our investigations into this incident continue, with local diversions in place.
“I am appealing for any witnesses to the crash, or any drivers with potential dash-cam footage, to please come forward and assist our ongoing inquiries.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
