A family have paid tribute to their “beloved” son who died in a car crash.
James Connor Cook, 19, was driving a purple Ford Fiesta on the unclassified Hill of Forss road around half a mile from the A836 junction near Thurso at around 11.10pm on Saturday December 1 when it crashed.
The teenager, who was from Bettyhill, was the only person in the car.
His family paid tribute to the 19-year-old, known as Connor, in a statement issued through police.
They said: “It is with great sorrow we announce the sudden death of our son Connor, aged 19.
“Beloved son of James and Mary, brother of Tori and Erin and friend to many in Sutherland and Caithness.”
Officers are investigating the crash in Caithness and asked anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who has any further information to contact police on 101.
Road Policing Sergeant Alan Henderson said: “Our thoughts are with Connor’s family and friends at this difficult time.
“Our enquiries into the incident are ongoing and I would urge anyone who can help the investigation but has not yet spoken to police to get in touch.
“You can contact the road policing unit in Dingwall on 101, quoting reference NJ3054/18.”
Meanwhile, a teenager has died four days after he was hit by an HGV.
The 15-year-old boy was on foot in Strathaven, South Lanarkshire, when he was struck at around 9.25pm on Saturday.
He was taken to hospital and died on Wednesday.
A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
