Police officers examining the scene of Friday night's bus crash.

Police are calling for any other witnesses to the tragic bus crash that occurred near Munlochy on Friday to come forward – including any who may have dashcam footage of the incident.

Speaking in the aftermath Sergeant Alan Henderson of the Highlands and Islands Division road policing unit said officers have already spoken to a number of witnesses, but are still keen to hear from any others who have not come forward yet.

With three passengers in a serious but stable condition in hospital as the Courier went to press yesterday, as well as Mr Chache who was killed, he said: “Our thoughts at this time are with those involved and their families.

“An investigation into the collision is underway and we have already spoken to a number of witnesses. In order to help establish the cause of the collision, I would urge anyone who saw the vehicle prior to the collision who has not already come forward, to do so.”

And he added: “Likewise, if any motorists believe they may have dashcam footage which could assist our enquiries, I appeal for them to come forward.”

Bus driver Mohamed Chache (50) lived in Inverness and though originally from Zanzibar had lived in Scotland for a number of years.

He had worked for Stagecoach for around 12 years. 

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or the anonymous Crimestoppers service on 0800 555 111 in confidence, quoting inc-ident number 2792 of January 11, 2019.
