One of our regular readers took the above picture while waiting at the Leopold Street lights this afternoon and gave us the following report: "An accident occurred today at approximately 2:30 pm on the A96 at the junction with Albert Street. A car mounted the pavement just outside the entrance to Rosebank School destroying the railings. It's not clear at this time if anyone was hurt in the incident, emergency services attended and the vehicle was removed."
Here is a salutatory reminder of the power of even a small motor car and what can happen if something goes wrong. A reminder of just how busy traffic is in Nairn these days perhaps and how much safer we'd be if there was a by-pass around town? No doubt more information will emerge about this incident in the near future.
