The man who died in a five-vehicle crash on the A96 Forres to Elgin road has been named as Robert Bowmer.

The 61-year-old, from the Alves area, was driving a red Ford C-Max at the time of the crash, which took place at 5pm yesterday evening.

Three other men, who were treated at Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin following the collision, have subsequently been discharged.

Sergeant Scott Deans of the Road Policing Department said: “Our thoughts at this difficult time remain with those involved.

“Our investigations continue and in order to help piece together exactly what happened, I would urge anyone who may have seen the red Ford C-Max, prior to the collision, or who saw the incident itself and who hasn’t yet come forward, to contact police on 101.”
