Three people have died after a crash between a bus and two cars on the A90 in Aberdeenshire.
Emergency services were called to the collision between a red Renault Megane, a silver Ford B Max and a Scottish Citylink bus at Glenbervie at around 4.30pm today, 12th March.
Four people were taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary – one by helicopter and three by ambulance. Their injuries are described as serious but not life-threatening.
The bus driver was also hurt but not seriously, while none of the passengers were injured.
Road Policing Chief Inspector Stewart Mackie said: “This has been a challenging incident for the emergency services to deal with and my thoughts are with the families of all those affected by this.
“I would ask that anyone who witnessed the incident and who hasn’t already spoken to the police contacts officers on 101 using reference number 2576 of 12 March.
“This is likely to be a complex enquiry that will take some time and I am grateful to the public for their patience while this is carried out. Further details will follow once they are available.
Four fire engines from Stonehaven, Altens and North Drive were also there, as well as a heavy rescue appliance and around 25 firefighters.
A Scottish Citylink spokesperson said: “One of our coaches travelling from Glasgow to Aberdeen was involved in a serious multi-vehicle accident this afternoon on the A90 near Glenbervie Junction. Our immediate thoughts are for those involved in the incident.
“Safety is our absolute priority and we will assist police with their inquiries into the circumstances. There were no reported injuries to passengers travelling on the coach and they were provided with alternative transport to take them to Aberdeen bus station.”
