Police / Man charged in connection with early morning crash

AN EARLY morning crash resulted in a car passenger being taken to hospital for treatment and a man being arrested and charged by police.

The collision, which involved a lorry and a car, took place in the Scatsta area at around 7am this morning (Saturday).

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “The male passenger of the car was taken to Gilbert Bain Hospital for treatment. The driver of the car was checked over by paramedics at the scene and the driver of the lorry was not injured.

“A 40-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection and is due to appear at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Monday, 14 February, 2022.”

This article was amended on Sunday (13 February) to reflect that, after a query from Shetland News, Police Scotland confirmed its original details were incorrect and that a male passenger was taken to hospital, not female.
