A LITTLE boy is fighting for his life after a car crash that also seriously injured three women.
The youngster, who is just two, was critically hurt in a horrifying two-car smash in the Scottish Highlands.
The lad was in a blue Peugeot 208 which collided with a blue Nissan Qashqai on the remote A99 road, 13 miles south of John O’Groats.
He was rushed to a specialist children’s hospital in Glasgow, more than 250 miles away, following the crash in Occumster, Caithness at 4.45pm on Sunday.
The 25-year-old woman driving and her female passenger, 26, were taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with serious injuries.
The hospital is almost 200 miles away by road.
And the 44-year-old woman behind the wheel of the Nissan was rushed to hospital in Inverness, 100 miles away.
Police Scotland said the road was closed for around eight hours as a probe began into the crash.
Sergeant David Miller said: “A young child has sustained life-threatening injuries as a result of this crash with three women sustaining serious injuries.
“We are appealing for information to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.
“I would ask if you were driving in the area at the time and may have seen either car prior to the crash that you come forward and speak to officers.
“If there are any motorists with dashcam footage that were in the area around the time of the incident, please get in touch with police.”
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to contact police via 101, quoting incident number 2828 of August 22.
