A Moray man who died after being hit by a van while walking has been described as “one of the best”.
Jonathan Cameron, from Lossiemouth, who was better known to his friends as Johnny, was killed following the crash on the outskirts of Elgin on Saturday morning.
Yesterday police issued an appeal for witnesses to try and establish what happened before the collision, which occurred at about 6.20am on Saturday.
Mr Cameron, who worked in construction, was rushed to Dr Gray’s Hospital from the scene on the A941 Lossiemouth road about a mile north of Elgin but the 25-year-old later died from his injuries.
The man driving the van was not injured.
Last night friends and family of Mr Cameron posted online tributes to the former Lossiemouth High School and Moray College UHI student.
One said: “Jonathan, you were one of the best.”
Another added: “What a cruel world to some people. Rest well Johnny. Good times won’t be forgotten.”
A third said: “Gone but never forgotten. One of the best lads I’ve met and only known him for a short time.
“RIP bud, hope to see you again one day.”
Police investigators remained at the scene for most of Saturday with the A941 remaining closed between Elgin and the B9135 Lossiemouth road turn-off for nearly 10 hours.
Sergeant Scott Deans, from the roads policing team, said inquiries remain ongoing to establish the full circumstances of the incident.
He said: “Our thoughts at this difficult time remain with those involved.
“Our investigations continue and in order to help piece together exactly what happened.
“I would urge anyone who witnessed the collision or saw pedestrians on the road around this time, or if anyone has dashcam footage of the incident, to contact us.”
Anyone with information should contact police by calling 101.
