A WOMAN with “potentially serious injuries” has been taken to Lerwick’s Gilbert Bain Hospital after a two vehicle head on crash on the A970, south of Cunningsburgh.
The collision involving a Garriock heavy goods vehicle and a car occurred at around 3.20pm at the Cliffs of Cunningsburgh.
Fire fighters had to cut the casualty from the car, whose condition is not yet known.
A spokeswoman for the hospital said on Tuesday evening that there was no further update available.
Islanders who passed the scene of the crash shortly after it happened said the car was badly damaged.
The road has been partly re-opened, but will remain single track only until Wednesday afternoon while the police carry out their investigations.
