The driver was also treated for minor injuries but released after treatment.

Sergeant Andrew Meikleham of Police Scotland urged anyone who witnessed the crash to contact them.

He added: "The road was closed for several hours while emergency services attended the scene but has now reopened and we pass on our thanks to road users and local people for their patience during this time."
