Two people have been injured following a two-vehicle crash on the A9.
The collision occurred on the Inverness to Perth trunk road at Calvine, around one mile north of the House of Bruar junction, shortly after 5.30pm last night.
Both casualties were freed from the wreckage by emergency crews before being placed into the care of paramedics.
Police, fire and paramedics were all called to the scene after the alarm was raised at 5.40pm.
A police spokesman said the occupants of the vehicles were “conscious and breathing” following the crash, which left the busy route blocked in both directions.
Two fire appliances from Pitlochry and Dunkeld were also called to assist at the scene following a request by police at 5.43pm.
Upon arrival, firefighters proceeded to make the area safe before departing the scene shortly before 7pm.
Officers closed the road in both directions as teams worked to clear the scene.
Members of the public were being asked to avoid the area during this time as officers remained stationed at the scene.
A local diversion was put in place for motorists, however, HGV’s were being stacked until the route reopened.
Transport Scotland urged motorists to allow extra time for their journey and approach the area with care.
