A MAN has died following an A9 crash earlier today.
Police confirmed the death of the 34-year-old, who has not yet been named, followed an accident on the A9 between Kingussie and Aviemore around noon.
The man was a passenger in a Ford Transit van which was involved in a collision with an HGV about three miles north of Kingussie.
The male driver of the van suffered what police described as "serious injuries" and has been taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
The driver of the HGV was treated at the scene and did not suffer any serious injuries..
The road was closed, and remains closed, with a diversion in place, to allow an investigation at the scene.
Sergeant Alasdair Mackay of Highland and Islands Road Policing said: "Our thoughts are with the man's family and friends at this time.
"We are working to establish the full circumstances which led to this collision.
"We would be keen to speak to anyone who may have information and has not yet spoken to police. Anyone who was on the road around that time and may have dash-cam footage is asked to check this and pass on anything of note.
"Anyone with information can contact police by calling 101, and quoting incident number 1341 of June 24."
