A female pedestrian was taken to hospital yesterday afternoon following a crash in the centre of Inverness.
Police and ambulance attended the scene not far from Johnny Foxes pub on the city’s Bridge Street.
In the late afternoon, a police car was parked in an area close to where the accident took place at the end of railing, which is there to prevent pedestrians from crossing away from the traffic lights.
Police officers spoke to a woman at the scene.
A Scottish Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “We received a call at 3.34pm.
“We dispatched one ambulance to the scene. One female patient was transported to Raigmore Hospital.”
Like much of Scotland, wintry weather in Inverness made the roads precarious with rain, sleet, snow and freezing temperatures.
Police have been warning drivers to take extra care when out and advised on adequate breaking distances in adverse weather.
Elsewhere, a 59-year-old man was flown from Shetland by air ambulance to Aberdeen on Tuesday evening.
The man had been injured in a traffic accident earlier in the day on North Road close to the Gremista Road junction.
The unidentified man was hit while crossing the main road and is said to be in a serious but stable condition.
The police were called at 11.25am and are investigating the incident, they have appealed for any witnesses to the accident to come forward.
