An 88-year-old man has become the second victim of a fatal crash on the A9.

His wife, aged 86, who was driving a white Nissan Pixo, died in hospital shortly after her car was in collision with a red Volvo V60 on Friday November 19.

The accident happened where the B9161, from Munlochy, joins the dual carriageway A9, north of the Kessock Bridge at Inverness, at 4.20pm.

The woman’s husband, who was a passenger in the Nissan, died on Saturday December 4.

Police inquiries into the crash are continuing.

Sergeant Neil MacDonald, of Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the deceased.

“The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this time.”
