A one-vehicle accident at Edderton last night led to two teenagers being taken to hospital in Inverness.

The driver – an 18-year-old man – and a 16-year-old female passenger were both taken by ambulance to Raigmore Hospital after the crash at around 10.55pm last night.

They were in a red Vauxhall Astra and crashed on the A836 about a mile east of Edderton in Easter Ross.

A police spokesman said both teenagers are described as being in a serious but stable condition.

Sergeant David Miller said: "We are working to establish the full circumstances of this crash and would urge anyone who may have seen the Vauxhall Astra being driven between Bonar Bridge and Edderton to come forward.

"Anyone who has a dashcam and was on the road is asked to review their footage and contact police if they have anything which may be relevant.

"Anyone with information can contact police on 101, quoting incident 3961 of 24 November."

The road was closed for approximately seven hours to allow an investigation to take place.
