Inspector Greg Dinnie of the Road Policing Unit said: “This was a serious crash involving four adults and thirty-eight children who were on the bus and in a Skoda Octavia.

“Our enquiries into the cause of the collision are continuing and I would urge anyone who saw what happened, and has not yet spoken to officers, to come forward.

“I would also ask motorists who were using the A9 at around 4-45pm and may have been recording via dash-cam devices to check their systems and provide any relevant footage to us as soon as possible.

“The road was closed for approximately 10 hours to allow our crash investigations to be undertaken. I would like to thank the public for their patience whilst this was being carried out."

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting incident number 2981 of 19 June, 2021.
