Woman hurt in car smash

A WOMAN was taken to hospital with suspected neck and spinal injuries following a head-on smash yesterday.

Emergency services said torrential weather conditions reduced visibility and caused one driver to stray on to the wrong side of the A702 Easter Howgate and hit an oncoming car.

Two people in the oncoming car had to be cut free by fire crews, with one being removed on a spinal board with suspected neck and spinal injuries.

Meanwhile, four people were injured after a collision between a car and a motorbike on Saturday. The accident happened on the junction outside Melville Golf Course at about 5:45pm.
