A SERIOUS crash near the A9 which left a driver with "potentially life threatening injuries" has sparked a police appeal for information.

Officers have urged any witnesses to come forward, and for motorists travelling in the area to check their dashcam footage.

The crash occurred near Invergordon at around 7.55am today.

It took place on Academy Road, between the A9's Tomich junction and Inverbreakie Industrial Estate.

Police said that three vehicles were involved – two black Vauxhall Astra cars and a grey Audi Q5 – all of which were being driven south towards Invergordon.

Officers added that the 25-year-old male driver of one of the Vauxhall cars was taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness "for treatment to serious and potentially life threatening injuries".

Neither the 20-year-old male driver of the other Astra nor the 55-year-old man driving the Audi were injured.

The road was closed to allow for an investigation at the scene. The road was reopened at 8pm.

Sergeant Angus Macleod, of the Road Policing Unit in Dingwall, said: "We are carrying out enquiries to establish the full circumstances which led to this crash and would urge anyone with information to come forward.

"We would be keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the crash or who may have seen the vehicles involved beforehand. Anyone who was on the road around that time and may have dashcam footage is asked to review it and pass on anything of note to us.

"Any information can be passed on by calling 101, quoting incident 0528 of November 19."
