Police investigating the death of a great-grandmother who was struck by a lorry will carry out a reconstruction of the tragedy.

Road closures will be put in place on St Machar Drive and King Street tomorrow morning as officers revisit the scene of the fatal collision between a lorry and 83-year-old Mary Allan.

Mrs Allan, also known as Molly, was described by her family as a “larger than life” character who was much loved.

She had been visiting the TSB bank on King Street just before she was struck by the heavy goods vehicle on Monday, September 10.

The road closures tomorrow morning will be in place from 8.45am to 10.45am as officers try to piece together exactly what happened.

Road policing sergeant, Scott Deans, said: “Our thoughts remain with the family of the woman who has tragically died.

“Our inquiries into the incident are continuing and we would urge anyone who witnessed what happened, but has not yet spoken to the police, to get in touch by calling 101.

“I’d like to thank motorists in advance for their patience while these vital inquiries are carried out.”

King Street will be shut off to traffic southbound from its junction with Beach Esplanade to the roundabout with St Machar Drive.

A diversion will be put in place for vehicles that are less than 7ft wide down the Beach Esplanade.

Mrs Allan has been described as a “well kent” member of the Bridge of Don community, and was a regular at the British Legion.

She is survived by her husband Ian, their three children Ian, Paul and Donna, three grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Her funeral was held this week and was so popular that crowds spilled out into the car park of the church.

Mrs Allan’s daughter, Donna Emslie, said that the family had not been informed of the planned re-enactment.

She said: “We have not been told anything at all. The police have not been back since it happened.

“We had mum’s funeral this week at Kaimhill, there were so many people there we had to hold a second service out in the car park.”
