A 61-year-old woman was taken to hospital as a precaution following a one-car crash in Nairn.

Emergency services rushed to the scene of an incident on the town’s King Street after receiving reports of a collision at around 3.15pm on Saturday.

The woman, who was a passenger in the blue Renault Kadjar involved in the crash, was taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness by ambulance.

Officers confirmed the driver of the vehicle – a 67-year-old man – will be reported to the procurator fiscal for a road traffic offence.

The A96 Elgin to Inverness road was taped off between Royal Walk and Gordon Street in Nairn but re-opened just before 6pm.

This caused large tailbacks along the A96. Fire crews also attended to help with the incident and left the scene at around 4.15pm.

“A 62-year-old female passenger was taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness as a precaution.

“The 67-year-old male driver of the car will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal for a road traffic offence.

“The road was re-opened around 5.50pm.”
