A MAN was cut free from a smashed car outside a Scots army barracks this evening, as horrifying pictures show the extent of the dramatic crash.
The emergency services raced to the scene in Kinloss , Moray, earlier today at around 4.20pm after a road smash between a lorry and car.
Snaps show the mashed up car lying at the side of the road, while the truck crashed through the Kinloss Barracks’ security fence and nearly hit into a nearby building.
Nobody was injured from the incident but fire crews had to cut a man free from the motor before he was taken to hospital as a “precaution”.
And now, cops are launching a full investigation into the crash as the road remains sealed off.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Around 4.20pm, on Monday, 31 August, we received reports of a two vehicle crash involving a truck and a car on Main Road, Kinloss just outside the Kinloss Barracks.
“A 52-year-old man was taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital as a precautionary measure.
“The road is currently closed and diversions are in place. Inquiries into the circumstances are ongoing.”
A Scottish Fire and Rescue spokeswoman added: “We were called out to a RTC involving a heavy goods vehicle and a car.
