The scene at Sunday's crash that injured four people.

Four people were injured and taken to hospital after a car crash last Sunday at the Caulfield Road – Tower Road junction, police have confirmed.

Police Scotland also said a woman had been charged in connection with the collision.

The police spokesperson said: "We were called around 12.25pm to a report of a three vehicle crash on Caulfield Road at Tower Road, Inverness.

"Four people were taken to hospital.

“A 28-year-old woman will be reported in connection with road traffic offences.”

The road was closed for a time after the crash which happened around 12.25pm.

A call for lower speed limits and other safety measures at the junction resurfaced after a crash.

Inverness councillor Duncan Macpherson believes the collision has served as a reminder of the area’s growing reputation as an accident black spot and the long delay in installing traffic lights at the site.

He has called for action to reduce speed limits on Tower Road amid fears that the existing 40mph limit and the large number of housing developments that turn onto it are risking motorist and pedestrian safety.

Cllr Macpherson added: “This junction, along with the main Tower Road junction has seen multiple traffic collisions for the past few years, where it joins the B9006 Culloden Battlefield Road – which the Highland Council has acknowledged needs improvements and I managed to get the funding ring-fenced for its construction."
