A man who died following a five-vehicle crash has been named by police.

Robert Bowmer, from the village of Alves in Moray, had been airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after the collision at around 5pm on Thursday.

The 61-year-old was driving a red Ford C-Max when the crash occurred on the A96 Forres to Elgin Road, near Forres Enterprise Park.

Three other males taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin for treatment have since been discharged.

Sergeant Scott Deans said: “Our thoughts at this difficult time remain with those involved.

“Our investigations continue and in order to help piece together exactly what happened, I would urge anyone who may have seen the red Ford C-Max prior to the collision, or who saw the incident itself and who hasn’t yet come forward, to contact police on 101.”
