Kilpatrick School pupils hurt in A82 livestock lorry crash

Six school children and two teachers have been treated in hospital after their minibus collided with a livestock lorry on the A82 near Loch Lomond.

The group from Kilpatrick School in West Dunbartonshire were hurt north of Luss, near Inverbeg, at about 10:12.

They were taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley for check ups and later released.

The A82 was closed for several hours due to animals on the carriageway. It has since reopened.

A spokeswoman for West Dunbartonshire Council said: "Pupils from Kilpatrick School were involved in a road traffic accident this morning on their way to Loch Lomond Outdoor Centre.

"Six pupils and two staff were taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital purely as a precautionary measure and all have since been released.

"The council would like to thank Police Scotland and the Scottish Ambulance Service for their assistance this morning."
