A man who died following a two-vehicle crash on the A947 near Oldmeldrum has been named by police as Andrew MacLurg.
The 25-year-old, from Oldmeldrum, who was driving a blue Audi A5 died at the scene after crashing with a white articulate lorry on Wednesday, July 28.
Emergency services were called to the incident on the A947 Aberdeen to Banff road near the junction with the A920 road to Ellon at around 4.40pm.
Sergeant Scott Deans said: “Our thoughts remain with Andrew’s family at this difficult time for them and our inquiries into the circumstances of the collision continue.
“I would urge anyone who witnessed the incident, or anyone with relevant dash cam footage who has not yet contacted officers, to please call officers via 101, quoting reference number 2425 of Wednesday, July 28.”
Following numerous incidents on the road, Mid Formartine councillor Jim Gifford said the council don’t have enough money to make all the changes they would like to see on the A947.
He said: “It is always sad to hear of incidents on any of our roads and our thoughts are with the friends and family of all those involved in this accident.
“Following many years of incidents along the whole of the A947, and especially at some known black-spots, the council has developed a road strategy for the route.
“Some improvements have been made but there is just not the money in the roads budget to do everything that we would like to see completed.
“We also hoped that one of the options for the A96 improvements might have taken some pressure off sections of the A947 but the route currently chosen is unlikely to improve the situation”.
