Bodies of men who died in horror Highlands crash 'left undiscovered overnight'

The bodies of two men who died after a car crashed into water in the Highlands reportedly lay undiscovered overnight.

We reported yesterday that the men tragically passed away after the tragic incident in Invergarry. The men, aged 27 and 31, were pronounced dead at the scene of the incident, just off the A87.

It's now been reported the victims lay undiscovered until Friday morning, despite the accident having happened on Thursday evening.

A local said: ""There were four of us at work and when we heard what had happened we couldn't believe it.

"It's scary to think they were there all night. Poor things."

While another added: "Everyone is sleeping around 11pm and the roads are so quiet, so no one knew until this morning.

"It's such a shame."

Officers from Police Scotland said they are investigating in a bid to establish exactly what happened and their next of kin have been informed.

Sergeant Ewan Calder said: “Our investigation into this incident is ongoing whilst we try to establish the full circumstances.

"We are appealing to anyone that may have seen the red Ford Focus, or the two men, prior to the crash. Our enquiries so far have established they were in the Fort Augustus area.

"We would also ask members of the public to check their dashcam or private CCTV footage and please get in touch if it holds anything relevant.

“If you have any information that may assist, please contact us through 101, quoting incident 0620 of May 24, 2024.”
