Man hurt at Girlsta after car collides with fuel tanker
A man was injured this morning after his car was in a crash with a fuel tanker at Girlsta. The main road had to be closed for about an hour while the police and other emergency services dealt with the accident.
The 27-year-old car driver was taken to the Gilbert Bain Hospital for treatment. The tanker driver was not hurt and nobody else was involved.
The tanker was reported to be laden with aviation fuel when the crash happened at around 10.30am. The police are looking for witnesses.
Although drivers are having to be careful in the snow, particularly during the ongoing showers, there have been no reported road blockages.
Meanwhile, flights in and out of Shetland remain disrupted with delays to Aberdeen, Kirkwall and Glasgow flights while the early morning Edinburgh departure was cancelled and the late morning Edinburgh arrival was running at least three hours late.
