It is understood the person was transported to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary by Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance, which also took a group of medics to the site.
The road has reopened to traffic around 7.30pm after the vehicles were recovered.

The blocked road resulted in the delay of this evening’s match between Elgin City and Stranraer, as the south-west team’s bus was forced to take a lengthy detour.
