Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was this morning (9 February 2016) called to attend the second road traffic collision in as many days at virtually the same location on the southbound carriageway of the A9.

Today’s multiple vehicle road traffic incident at Allangrange, was very near the location of another multiple vehicle collision SFRS crews attended yesterday morning.

An appliance from Fortrose, two from Inverness and the heavy rescue unit from Inverness were deployed to the area at 8.30am this morning (9 February 2016).

Crews, working with their colleagues in the Scottish Ambulance Service, helped two female drivers from their vehicles. Both suffered injuries and were placed in the care of paramedics before being taken to hospital for treatment.

Firefighters then stabilised a number of vehicles. Police Scotland was also in attendance at the scene.

Yesterday morning at almost the same time, crews were faced with one vehicle on fire, which was extinguished by firefighters in breathing apparatus using a hose reel jet. Two females were trapped in separate vehicles and both had to be extricated by SFRS crews.
