Police are appealing for assistance following a three-vehicle crash on a North-east road.
The incident happened on the A96 Between Colpy and Huntly at the Glens of Foudland, Aberdeenshire, at around 7.56pm last night.
The crash occurred due to a large U-shaped metal frame, similar to those used on logging lorries, which had fallen from an unknown vehicle on to the road. Three vehicles collided with this and sustained significant damage.
Constable Edwards, from the Inverurie Road Policing Unit, said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the U-shaped metal frame fall from a vehicle or saw a logging type vehicle on this road or has any dash cam of a journey taken on the A96 between Inverurie and Huntly in either direction around 7.56pm to contact the police.
“This had the potential to be very serious and I would ask anyone who has any information which would assist our investigation to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident number 3480 of the 19 January 2018.”
