Transport Minister comments on A83 coach accident

“Scottish Ministers have been kept fully informed of this serious incident across the afternoon and our immediate thoughts are with the passengers who have been transported to hospital.

“The emergency services have been working closely with helicopters from both Prestwick and Lossiemouth as well as mountain rescue teams and a rest centre has been set up in ‘Three Villages Hall’ in Arrochar to help the walking wounded.

“The A83, at The Rest and Be Thankful, remains closed to allow the investigation into what caused the accident to get underway.”
