Police and ambulance service staff were first to the scene of the accident on the A835 Inverness to Dingwall route near Newton of Ferintosh just after 1pm.

Paramedics then called for fire crew assistance and three appliances and a heavy rescue unit attended.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said: “We were requested to attend by ambulance crew members at around 1.20pm.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “We were made aware of a three vehicle crash on the A835 north of Tore Roundabout around 1.10pm on Thursday, 13 July.

“The road is currently closed and emergency services are at the scene.”

Traffic Scotland say the A835 is restricted in both directions at Newton of Ferintosh due to the road traffic accident.

Road users are advised to use caution on approach and allow extra time for their journeys.
