A man was airlifted to hospital last night after his car came off a Highland road.
Police were called to the A82 road between Invergarry and Spean Bridge shortly before 6pm last night, after they were contacted by the ambulance service.
The driver of the car involved – a black BMW – was airlifted to hospital in Glasgow with serious injuries.
The car’s passenger, who was also sat in the front, has been taken to Belford Hospital in Fort William.
A police spokesman said: “We received the call from the ambulance service at 5.18pm to attend a crash on the A82, at the Letterfinlay Lodge House.
“A car had come off the road and hit a tree.
“The driver was airlifted to hospital in Glasgow with serious injuries, while the front-side passenger was taken to Belford Hospital with non life threatening injuries.”
Last night, a fire service spokeswoman said the car was left “balancing over a burn that had a 20ft drop,” adding that cutting gear was used to remove the driver from the car.
A 154-mile long diversion was put in place while the road was closed until around 3am.
A nearby cafe, The Bridge Cafe, reopened its doors to help stranded motorists in need of a “comfort break”.
