Two teenagers were taken to hospital following a serious crash on a Highland road.
The incident happened at 10.55pm on Sunday, November 25 and involved one vehicle, a red Vauxhall Astra. The car struck the parapet of a bridge.
One occupant had to be cut free from the vehicle, the other managed to escape before emergency services arrived.
The A836 Tain to Ardgay road at Edderton was closed for several hours while an investigation was carried out.
Police said the driver – an 18-year-old man – and a 16-year-old female passenger were both taken by ambulance to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness. Both are described as being in a serious but stable condition.
A fire spokeswoman said: ““We received a call at 11pm to reports of a one-vehicle RTC.
“Three appliances were sent and they came from Tain, Dornoch and Golspie.
“Crews used three sets of hydraulic cutting gear alongside small gear.
“A stop message was received at 12.32am with crews departing shortly after.”
Sergeant David Miller of the Road Policing Unit in Dingwall said: “We are working to establish the full circumstances of this crash and would urge anyone who may have seen the Vauxhall Astra being driven between Bonar Bridge and Edderton to come forward.
“Anyone who has a dashcam and was on the road is asked to review their footage and contact police if they have anything which may be relevant.
“Anyone with information can contact police on 101, quoting incident 3961 of 24 November.”
A Highland Council spokesman said a roads service crew will be “inspecting the route today”.
