A woman has been taken to hospital following a crash involving three cars and two HGV lorries on a road in Argyll and Bute.
Eyewitnesses told STV News it was “a miracle” more people were not seriously hurt in the multi-vehicle collision on the A82 near Luss on Wednesday afternoon.
A green Mini was reportedly left “wedged” in a tree in the aftermath of the incident at around 12.20pm near the junction with The Old Mill Porte O’Rossdhu.
One motorist described how rescue crews were left to “pull apart the debris” from the scene after road police shut the area off to traffic for almost five hours.
They added: “There was a small green car that ended up in the trees by the side of the road and a lady who was being treated by paramedics.
“But she didn’t seem to be seriously hurt, she had a sore back and I think a graze to arm, however everyone else was walking about.
“It is miraculous no one was seriously injured because the scene looked awful.”
A 50-year-old woman was transported to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow for further treatment following the crash.
An investigation into the incident has now been launched.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Officers received reports of a five-vehicle crash, involving three cars and two HGVs, on the A82 near to the junction with The Old Mill Porte O’Rossdhu around 12.20pm on Wednesday, 15 June, 2022.
“The 50-year-old female driver of one of the cars was taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow for treatment.
“The road was re-opened 5pm and enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of the crash.”
