Four horses have died after a lorry crashed into a truck parked on the verge of the A9 last night (Tuesday August 25).
In a post on Facebook, the driver said: “My amazing family are fine & that is definitely the main thing.”
However, he added that they are ‘heartbroken’ by the incident which took place at Cairney Brae near Perth en route to the Blair Atholl Horse Trials.
A moderator from the Facebook page ‘Scotland from the Roadside’ said: “Please don’t get impatient if you are stuck behind a horsebox, often they can’t go faster than what they are travelling at…please remember they contain magnificent creatures that someone adores.”
The road reopened at 21:30 at night after the incident.
