Emergency services attended and the occupants of the Tesla car, two men and one woman, were taken to nearby Raigmore Hospital where the 51-year-old woman later died.

A 53-year-old man is described as critical and a 23-year-old man is receiving treatment for serious injuries.

The male driver of the Citroen van, aged 37, was airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, where his condition is described as serious.

The driver of the HGV, a 69-year-old man, was uninjured.

The road was closed to allow crash scene investigators access to the site to conduct further enquiries.

Sergeant Calum MacAuley said: “Our thoughts are with the families of those impacted by this collision. A full investigation is under way to establish the full circumstances of how this collision occurred.

"I am appealing to anyone who was on the A96 who may have seen the vehicles or witnessed the crash to contact us. Motorists with dash cam equipment are asked to check their footage as there may be images which could assist our ongoing enquiries.”

The road has since reopened.

Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 1230 of Monday, 12 February. 2024.
