A woman has escaped uninjured after falling out of a moving car into the middle of a busy road in the Highlands.
The incident happened at around 3pm on Monday at Culloden Road in the Cradlehall area of Inverness.
It is believed she got into the bright blue 18 plate Hyundai hatchback being driven by a woman with a man in the front passenger seat.
