The family of a woman killed in a north-east car crash have paid heartfelt tribute to her.
Anna Marcinkowska, 38, from Aberdeen, died shortly after she was involved in an accident on the B977 Torphins to Garlogie road at Raemoir, on Saturday.
She was on her way to visit sister Adriana, who lives in Banchory, who yesterday described her as an “angel.”
“She was a great person, just amazing,” said Adriana Marcinkowska, 42, of her sister, who worked as a software engineer in Aberdeen.
“If you spoke to her colleagues at work, they’d say the same. She had a very good heart.”
The sisters’ mother and brother also live in Banchory, with the tight-knit family having moved to the north-east from Poland 13 years ago.
Miss Marcinkowska added: “Anna loved dogs. She had two and loved them as if they were her children.
“Dogs and family were the most important things in her life.
“It’s difficult for the whole family. I’ve cried for the last two days.
“If there is one word for Anna, it would be ‘angel’. That’s the kind of person she was to everyone.
“There’s not a lot of people like her.
“She loved my kids as they loved her and she was always the first to help people around her.”
Miss Marcinkowska herself left no children.
Following Saturday morning’s crash, involving a red Honda Jazz and a red Abarth 500, both Miss Marcinkowska and a 65-year-old man were taken to hospital.
Police said the man had sustained serious leg and hip injuries.
The road at the scene was closed and a full crash scene investigation carried out.
Police continue to appeal for information.
Sergeant Craig McNeill said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this collision to get in touch with us by calling 101.
“I am also keen to hear from anyone who may have seen either of these cars just prior to the crash, and again anyone who may have been along this road just prior to the crash, who had a dash-cam fitted and operating.”
