The elderly driver of a car who died after a crash with an articulated lorry in the Highlands has been named.
Matthew Donnell’s black Peugeot 2008 collided with the DAF vehicle at around 11am on Wednesday on a section of the A939, known as the Dava road, a few miles away from his Grantown-on-Spey hometown.
The 86-year-old was driving the car and was pronounced dead at the scene.
An 81-year-old woman was also taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness where she remains for treatment.
Her condition is still described as serious.
Sergeant David Miller said: “Our thoughts are with Mr Donnell’s family.
“I would ask anyone who may have been driving along that stretch of road before the collision happened to get in touch and to check if they have any dash-cam footage that could help with our investigation.
“If you can help please call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 0987 of Wednesday, 7 October, 2020.”
