A 34-year-old man has died after an accident involving an HGV and Ford Transit van in the Highlands.

At around 12pm on Wednesday, an HGV and Ford Transit van were involved in a crash on the A9, between Kingussie and Aviemore.

The man was a passenger in the transit van.

The male driver of the van suffered serious injuries and has been transported to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

The driver of the HGV was treated at the scene and did not suffer any serious injuries.

The road remains closed with diversions in place to allow for investigation.

Sergeant Alasdair Mackay, of Highland and Islands Road Policing, said: “Our thoughts are with the man’s family and friends at this time.

“We are working to establish the full circumstances which led to this collision.

“We would be keen to speak to anyone who may have information and has not yet spoken to police. Anyone who was on the road around that time and may have dash-cam footage is asked to check this and pass on anything of note.

“Anyone with information can contact police by calling 101, and quoting incident number 1341 of 24 June.”
