The victim died after sustaining serious injuries in the accident between Spean Bridge and Fort William at around 2.40pm yesterday. The driver of the other vehicle, a Ford Transit, was taken to Belford Hospital in Fort William, but was not thought to be seriously injured. Local diversions were in place and police appealed for witnesses.
Meanwhile, a 91-year-old man has died more than a week after his 86-year-old wife died when the car they were in crashed into a roundabout. The man, who was driving, had been in Hairmyres Hospital, East Kilbride, following the incident at The Centre roundabout in the town's Cornwall Way on February 20.
