POLICE have issued a fresh appeal following a Highland road crash which claimed the life of a highly respected community activist.

And they believe the driver of a white vehicle in the vicinity around the time of the incident may hold information which could prove "vital" in their investigation.

The accident on the A836 between Ardgay and Bonar Bridge in Sutherland happened on Monday, December 23 last year.

Rhona Macfarlane (67), who was from Ardgay, was pronounced dead at the scene after being struck by a red Toyota Auris at around 4.40pm.

It happened near a junction known locally as the Crom junction.

Constable Robbie Stewart of the road policing department, said: “We are looking to speak to the driver of a white vehicle, possibly a Volkswagen Golf, which was travelling towards Ardgay between the hours of 4.25pm and 4.40pm.

“We believe the driver of this vehicle may be able to provide information that could prove vital in our investigation.

“I would also urge anyone who has any information or possible dashcam footage relating to this incident to contact Police on 101 quoting incident number 2546 of 23 December, 2019.”
