A busy road on the fringes of Perthshire has been closed in both directions due to a one-vehicle crash.

Three people were in the silver Volkswagen Bora when the crash took place.

One person is said to have been treated by paramedics. Their injuries are not thought to be serious.

The incident took place about two miles south of Callander.

A police spokeswoman said: “It was 3.45pm that we were contacted. One car was involved.
