Boy seriously injured after loose trailer smashes into car
The 10-year-old boy and the 65-year-old driver of the car were airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary following the crash.
A ten-year-old boy has been seriously injured after a car was apparently struck by a detached trailer.
The boy and the 65-year-old driver of the car were airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary following the crash around a mile north of Turriff.
The incident involving a Kia Sedona people carrier and a tractor towing the trailer happened at around 8.50am on Tuesday on the A947 Turriff to Banff road.
Roads policing Inspector Mike McDonald said: "The trailer appears to have become detached from the tractor and collided with the Kia.
"Our enquiries are continuing and local diversions are in place while a full accident investigation takes place."
The two other passengers in the Kia - 50-year-old woman and another child - were treated on the scene but their injuries are not thought to be serious. The tractor driver was uninjured.
The Kia was driving south on the A947, while the tractor was travelling north.
