THE driver of a bus involved in an accident at Littlemill Bridge, Munlochy yesterday has died. The 50-year-old man sustained fatal injuries when the single decker bus collided with the bridge at about 5.40pm, landing on its side. There were nine passengers on the 37-seater bus at the time, three of which remain in a serious but stable condition according to police while the other passengers sustained minor injuries. The bus was travelling from Inverness to Cromarty. Police are appealing for information. Sergeant Alan Henderson of the region's road policing unit said: "Our thoughts at this time are with those involved and their families. "An investigation into the collision is under way and we have already spoken to a number of witnesses. "In order to help establish the cause of the collision, I would urge anyone who saw the vehicle prior to the collision who has not already come forward, to do so. "Likewise, if any motorists believe they may have dash-cam footage which could assist our enquiries, I appeal for them to come forward." Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 080055511.
