Winter roads endure in Angus
It is not known if winter weather conditions were a factor in the crash.
The incident comes after Angus was hit by further heavy snow, causing widespread problems on the region’s roads.
Tayside was hit by up to 12in of snow after freezing air swept into the region at the start of the week.
The blizzards brought the local area to a standstill with avalanches reported on local hills, and schools and Covid-19 vaccination centres forced to close their doors.
RTC near Stracathro on southbound A90 – the road is open and the vehicles involved are clear of the carriageway, but please approach slowly and with caution as emergency services are roadside dealing with the incident.https://t.co/fSC7EeLCYr
