Police continue to investigate the cause of an accident that claimed the life of a 31-year-old woman and left two children seriously injured in hospital.
The pair – a seven- year-old boy and six-year-old girl – remain at Dundee’s Ninewells Hospital where their condition is described as “serious”.
The Honda Civic car in which all three were travelling was involved in a head-on collision with a van on the A9 at Luncarty, just north of Perth, on Thursday evening.
Medical teams, police officers and firefighters all worked at the scene but were sadly unable to save the woman’s life.
The 36-year-old driver of the car escaped with minor injuries, as did the 70-year-old driver of the van, though he was taken to hospital as a precaution.
The children were rushed to hospital by ambulance where family remain at their bedsides.
The accident, which took place at around 7.20pm, left the A9 closed in both directions for some time while police road traffic accident investigators and paramedics worked at the scene.
A report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal once a probe into the cause of the crash has concluded.
