George Jack (36) died of injuries sustained after the collision in Avoch on Janaury 1.

A MAN involved in a New Year's Day accident on the Black Isle has died in hospital.

Police confirmed this afternoon that George Jack, who was 36, died from injuries sustained after being struck by a car at Station Road in Avoch in the early hours of January 1.

Mr Jack, who was local to the area, was hit by a Ford Fiesta in the early hours of New Year's Day. It is understood he was on his way home from a Hogmanay celebration in the village.

The accident happened at around 5am.

Mr Jack was first taken to Raigmore before being transferred to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

The road was closed for several hours following the accident.

In a statement released through police this afternoon, his family said: "We are understandably devastated by our loss. We would ask that our privacy is respected at this extremely difficult time."

It's understood Mr Jack was a well-known character locally who served as an office bearer with Avoch Amenities Association.

Inquiries are still ongoing in relation to the incident and anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.

Seen what happened on the police page.. and everyones being unfair. When i was a kid i was tought not to walk out in the road in front of cars. If someone jumped out a plane, would the pilot be to blame?
Still tragic what happened but stop pointing fingers if its nothing to do with you.

Let jump on the bandwagon here guys, Clearly some people here have no idea whats gone on and dont know any facts at all, Only the people involved know what happened. The fact that some people here are only posting because they can remain anonymous is quite funny as if their real names were to be posted it would be a different story
