POLICE have appealed for witnesses to an accident which claimed the life of a 25-year-old man in Easter Ross to come forward.
They say dash-cam footage could prove "extremely helpful" in investigations following the tragedy on the A9 near Alness Point yesterday afternoon.
The 25-year-old man, whose name has not yet officially been released by police, was the driver of a Peugeot 208 which was involved in a collision with a grey Ford Edge around 5.10pm on Friday.
A man and a woman who were within the Ford sustained what police described as "minor injuries".
The next of kin of the man who died have been made aware.
Sergeant Alan Henderson of the road policing unit in Dingwall said: "Our thoughts are very much with man's family and all those affected by this tragic incident.
"An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the collision is ongoing and I urge anyone who either saw what happened, or saw either vehicle in the lead-up to the collision, to please get in touch as soon as possible.
"Dash-cam footage in particular would be extremely helpful."
Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 2861 of November 29.
