The road was closed for several hours while emergency services attended, reopening at around 4.30pm.
Mearns councillor George Carr, inset, called for steps to be taken in order to make the main road safer in the wake of the crash.
He said: “My thoughts and best wishes are with the people who have been injured. I wish them a speedy recovery.
“It does raise concerns over how safe the road is. The whole of the A90 raises concerns and I would like to see improvements made.
“Things like junctions and acceleration and deceleration lanes need to be looked at because at the moment, it’s not good enough.”
