Fatal accident on A90

A woman has died after being involved in a collision on the A90 near to Stracathro in the early hours of this morning.

The woman – understood to be in her early 40s - died after the car she was driving was involved in a collision with an articulated lorry on the southbound carriageway of the A90, near to Stracathro in Angus shortly after 5 a.m. today.

Emergency services were quick to attend at the collision, but tragically the woman, who was driving a dark-coloured Ford vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was hurt as a result of the incident.

The southbound carriageway is currently closed and is likely to remain so for some time while crash investigators carry out a thorough examination of the scene. Diversions are in place.

The woman’s details will not be released until she has been formally identified and next of kin have been fully informed.

Police Scotland would appeal to anyone who witnessed the time of the incident to call them on 101, or speak to any officer.
