A POLICE van and a power company van collided in the city centre this morning causing partial closure of roads.
It is understood no-one was badly hurt in the accident at the Ness Bridge junction between Bridge Street and Bank Street at around 8am.
Morning traffic was disrupted as police attended to re-direct traffic.
Witness Malcolm MacCallum, who arrived on the scene shortly after the crash, said it was unclear exactly how it had happened.
The 72-year-old, of Glenurquhart Road, said: “I was out for my daily shop and exercise and from the end of the High Street I saw all these flashing lights down the street at the bridge.
“It wasn’t clear what had happened because the SSE vehicle appeared to be facing in the wrong direction, pointing diagonally across the lane it was blocking.
“The lane heading west across the river was blocked and traffic was stopped on Bridge Street. Two officers were directing traffic.
“Thankfully, it didn’t look like anyone was hurt.”
A police spokesman said: "Emergency services are currently dealing with a two-vehicle road traffic crash on Bridge Street in Inverness. There are no details of any injuries."
