A bus driver is facing prosecution after the vehicle he was driving crashed on the A9 whilst carrying a party of elderly holidaymakers.
Northern Constabulary advised that a 62 year old bus driver had been reported to the Procurator-fiscal in connection with the accident which occurred on the 16th April. It is thought that he faces charges under the Road Traffic Act.
At the time of the road traffic accident the bus he was driving was travelling from Dornoch to the north of England. He was carrying 33 passengers when the bus was involved in a car crash. The bus was involved in a collision with a lorry and after the accident, the bus left the road and landed on its side down an embankment. The accident occurred near the Drumochter Pass on the Inverness-Perth trunk road.
A large scale rescue operation was launched involving five ambulances, four fire appliances, a rapid response unit and two local GPs. Fourteen people in total were injured in the accident.
