Police wish to identify van driver who may have seen fatal accident in Nairn on Thursday 29th October

"At around 15:30 hours on Thursday 29 October 2015, police in Nairn received a report of a serious road traffic collision involving a heavy goods vehicle and two female pedestrians, near to the pedestrian crossing on Academy Street in the town centre.

Sadly, Margaret Ritchie (80) from Inverurie died as a result of injuries sustained in the collision.

It has been identified that a red Mercedes Sprinter-type van which was travelling east, stopped immediately after the collision within the entrance to the Fire Station and the driver exited, before assisting at the scene.

It is anticipated that the driver may have witnessed the collision or have valuable information that would be of benefit to the Road Policing Unit officers, who are investigating the collision.

Police would therefore seek this opportunity to ask the driver of the van to contact them on 101."
