Police have issued an appeal after an elderly man was killed in a crash on the A939.
The crash north of Grantown, involving a black Peugeot 2008 and a DAF articulated lorry, happened around 11am yesterday on a section of the A939 Grantown-Nairn road on the Dava stretch, four and a half miles north of the Strathspey capital.
An 86-year-old man, the driver of the car, was pronounced dead at the scene and an 81-year-old woman was taken by the Scottish Ambulance Service 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.
“If you can help please call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 0987 of Wednesday, 7 October, 2020.”
