A pensioner has died and four others are in hospital following a serious two-car crash on a road in the Highlands.

Officers were called to reports of the crash, which involved a black Kia Sportage and a silver Kia Venga, on the A832 north of Dundonnell at around 11.30am on Wednesday.

A 69-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene by attending emergency services.

The driver of the Kia Venga, a 63-year-old woman, and a passenger of the Kia Sportage, a 72-year-old woman, suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries and were airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

The driver of the Kia Sportage, a 77-year-old man, and a 75-year-old female passenger were taken by ambulance to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness.

The road was closed for around seven and a half hours to allow a full collision investigation to take place.

Sergeant Calum MacAulay, of Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts remain with the family of the man who died in this crash.

“Our enquiries continue to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident and would appeal to anyone who has any information to come forward and speak to police.

“I would also ask if there are any motorists who have possible dashcam footage of the area around the time of the incident to get in touch with officers.

“Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting incident number 1134 of Wednesday, August 31, 2022.”
