Three people sustained fractures including the driver of the vehicle which crashed head-on with another car on the A9.

Inverness Sheriff Court heard that the collision happened on December 28, 2021 at the north end of Aviemore.

Emma Baillie, of Cairnview Road, Aviemore was travelling north in her Ford Fiesta.

Fiscal depute Pauline Gair was told that her car crossed into the opposite carriageway and hit an oncoming VW Golf.

"She told police she didn't know what happened," she said. "But dash-cam footage showed her turn into the path of the VW."

One of its two occupants suffered a broken neck, sternum, five ribs and a collapsed lung and she still has problems with day-to-day activities.

Her passenger sustained three broken ribs and whiplash, Mrs Gair told Sheriff Eilidh Macdonald.

Baillie's wrist was shattered in two places.

The 36-year-old admitted causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

Sentence was deferred until July 20 for a background report and she was disqualified from driving in the interim.
