The driver of a BMW car which left the A82 road close to the Letterfinlay Lodge hotel, near Spean Bridge, and plunged down a ravine hitting a tree early on Saturday evening, sustained serious injuries, according to Police Scotland.

Ambulance control alerted Police Scotland at 5.18pm to the accident and the road was closed while emergency services were on the scene.

It was reported the driver had to be cut free by firefighters from the car while the vehicle was perched in a precarious position in the ravine.

A passenger in the vehicle suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment.

A Police Scotland spokesperson told the Lochaber Times on Sunday: ‘A car had left the road and hit a tree. There were two people in the BMW and the driver suffered serious injuries, while the passenger sustained minor injuries.’
