Two teenagers and a pensioner have been hospitalised following a crash involving a car and a campervan near Nairn.

Emergency crews rushed to the scene on the A96 between Aberdeen and Inverness at around 11.10pm on Saturday following reports of the incident involving a black Ford Fiesta and Fiat Ducato campervan.

The driver of the car and front seat passenger, both 18, suffered serious injuries in the collision but are said to be in a stable condition at Raigmore Hospital.

A 72-year-old woman, who was a rear-seat passenger in the campervan is also undergoing treatment at the facility.

The Ford is understood to have been emerging from the B9092 junction with the trunk road when it came into contact with the other vehicle.

Two female passengers in the car, aged 17 and 18 respectively, were also transferred to hospital as a precaution but were later released.

The 72-year-old male driver of the campervan and the front seat passenger were unhurt in the incident.

Police are urging any motorists with dashboard-mounted cameras to come forward and share the footage with investigators as part of the probe into the incident.

“Although the crash took place late at night, I would ask any witnesses, or anyone with information that will assist our ongoing investigation to contact us.  

“I would also ask anyone driving on that road around the time of the crash with dash-cam footage to get in touch.” 

Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland via 101 quoting reference number 4704 of Saturday, June 4.
