A man and a woman were taken to hospital today morning after the lorry they were travelling in overturned on an Aberdeenshire road.

The one-vehicle accident happened on the A97 between Rhynie and Huntly around 6am.

The pair had to be cut free from the lorry by a fire and rescue crew from Huntly.

One of the casualties was airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, and the other was driven there by road ambulance.

The Mann lorry is understood to have overturned and spilled its load of logs over the road at New Noth, near Gartly.

A police spokeswoman said: “The road required to be closed at Culdrain.

“There was two people in the lorry and one male was airlifted to hospital as a precaution, there was no indication of serious injury.”

A fire and rescue spokesman said the roof of the lorry had to be removed in order to free the occupants.

Three appliances from North Anderson Drive in Aberdeen were also called to the scene, but the Huntly crew had the situation under control by the time they arrived.

The road remained closed between the A96 junction and the B9002 junction at Gartly until 12.30pm while the vehicle was recovered.

An ambulance spokeswoman said: “There were two patients taken into ARI, we got the call at 6.03am.”

She said she did not know the nature of their injuries.
