Four in hospital after car smashed through wall

A teenage driver is in a critical condition in Ninewells Hospital after the car he was driving overturned in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Emergency services were called to the scene at Quarrypark, near Rescobie Loch, on the B9113 Forfar to Montrose Road at around 3.40am after the black Peugeot 106 left the road and overturned while travelling towards Montrose, smashing in to a 10-feet high section of drystone wall.

The car’s four occupants were taken by ambulance to Ninewells where the 19-year-old male driver is currently in a critical condition with head and chest injuries. Another 19-year-old man who was travelling in the front passenger seat is in a serious but stable condition after suffering a head injury while one of the back seat passengers, also 19, is in a stable condition after undergoing surgery to treat a number of facial fractures.

The other backseat passenger, a 17-year-old man, suffered significant bruising but was not seriously injured.

The road was closed for a number of hours to allow crash investigators to examine the scene but has since been reopened.

Anyone who witnessed the incident take place or anyone who remembers seeing the Peugeot 106 car on the road should get in touch with Police Scotland Tayside Division on 101 or speak to any police officer.
