Fatal accident inquiry hears bus driver killed in accident on the Black Isle was driving too fast
CCTV footage showed Inverness bus driver Mohamed Chache was driving at 53mph in a 40mph limit seconds before the accident on the Black Isle.
Mr Chache (50) was thrown through the windscreen after his bus hit Littlemill Bridge on the B9161 near Munlochy on January 11 last year.
He suffered head and spinal injuries and died of asphyxiation after becoming trapped beneath the vehicle, which landed on its side.
The fatal accident inquiry at Inverness Sheriff Court heard evidence that Mr Chache was one of Stagecoach's safest drivers.
