Police Scotland is appealing for witnesses following a fatal road traffic crash near Nairn.

The incident happened around 7pm on Sunday on the A96 at Wester Hardmuir, four miles west of Nairn and involved a blue Citroen DS3 car.

A 41-year-old woman died and her next of kin have been informed.

Police Sergeant David Miller of the Road Policing Unit said: “Our inquiries are continuing into the full circumstances.

"Sadly the female driver died and our thoughts are with her family and friends.

“I would ask anyone who may have witnessed the crash, or who may have dash-cam footage, and has not yet spoken to or provided this information to officers, to contact us as soon as possible.

“The road was closed for just over six hours and diversions were in place.

"I would like to thank members of the public for their patience while we carried out our investigation into this serious crash.

“Anyone with information should call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 2947 of 11 July.”
