A 50-year-old man has been charged in connection with a fatal crash that claimed the life of a 26-year-old nursery teacher near Drumnadrochit.
Chloe Morrison, who was described as a “shining light”, died following the incident in October last year.
Police said the man has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
The incident occurred on the A82 Inverness to Fort William road at Drumnadrochit on October 25 around 1.10pm.
Miss Morrison, who was a nursery teacher and hailed from the village, was walking along the pavement next to the busy route before the tragic incident.
She died at the scene.
Police have said a report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal with the man expected to appear at court at a later date.
The charge comes after several appeals in the wake of the incident by police seeking public assistance for information to piece together the events leading up to the incident, including tracing a flatbed Scania HGV equipped with a HIAB crane.
The death of the 26-year-old was met with much sadness and shock in the local community.
Miss Morrison’s family spoke of their devastation at the time at the loss of “our beloved Chloe”.
Friends and parents of children at the nursery where she worked paid tribute to Miss Morrison calling her a “joy”.
Hilda Gordon stated: “She was a shining light in this world and will be greatly missed.”
Caitriona MacDonald added: “Absolutely devastated – my two adored Miss Morrison at breakfast club. She will be sorely missed.”
Local councillor Margaret Davidson said the death was being felt by the whole community.
She said at the time: “Everyone is absolutely staggered that this has happened.
“Chloe and her family are very well respected and are very much at the heart of the local community in Drumnadrochit and the wider area.
“Everyone is feeling this loss – it is just dreadful.
“My heart goes out to Chloe’s family at what is an incredibly sad time.”
As a result of the incident, the road remained closed for several hours as police investigators carried out an extensive search of the area to piece together the circumstances leading up to the incident.
