POLICE have issued an appeal for witnesses after a two-vehicle A9 smash on the Black Isle which has resulted in the death of an 86-year-old woman.

The incident happened around 4.20pm on Friday at the Munlochy junction for the B9161 and A9.

It involved a white Nissan Pixo and a red Volvo V60.

The driver of the white Nissan, an 86-year-old woman, was taken to Raigmore Hospital where, sadly, she later died.

Sergeant Neil MacDonald, of Road Policing, said: “Our enquiries into the cause of this crash are ongoing and we are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time to get in touch.

“In particular we are keen to speak to anyone who saw the cars or who may have dash-cam footage that can help with our investigation.

“If you can help please contact us on 101, quoting incident number 2379 of 19 November.”

The incident prompted long tailbacks and has reignited calls for improvements at the junction.

Police advised motorists to avoid the area where possible.

Highland Council said local diversions are in place.

Motorists reported significant delays.

The area's MSP Kate Forbes, who has campaigned for improvements at the Munlochy junction, posted: "Extremely worrying news at the Munlochy junction, and my thoughts are entirely with those involved in the RTC. I recognise this will have impacted many other travellers too."
