POLICE have issued a witness appeal following a Highland road collision which resulted in the death of a man and left a woman seriously hurt in hospital.
Road police officers are appealing for information following a crash on the A939 north of Grantown on Spey which resulted in the death of an 86-year-old.
The crash, involving a black Peugeot 2008 and a DAF articulated lorry, happened around 11am on a section of the route known as the Dava road, just over four miles north of Grantown on Spey.
Police said the man who died was the driver of the car.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
An 81-year-old woman was taken by the Scottish Ambulance to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, where her condition is described as serious.
Sergeant David Miller, of the North Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the family of the man who sadly died in this crash and our enquiries are ongoing to find out what happened.
“I would ask anyone who may have been driving along that stretch of road before the accident happened to get in touch and to check if they have any dash-cam footage that could help with our investigation."
