Three people have been taken to hospital after a crash which shut down a road in the Highlands for seven hours.
Emergency services, including four ambulances, a trauma team, an air ambulance and critical care paramedic, were called to the A96, near Balloch, at around 12.16pm on Monday after a crash between a car and a van.
