The family of the 28-year-old woman killed in a three-vehicle crash in Moray have said they are “devastated by the tragic loss of our beautiful, warm, fun loving, caring wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend to so many”.
Leigh-Anne Wood, 28, of Elgin, was travelling alone along the A96 when she was involved in a collision with two other vehicles near Fochabers.
Today her family paid tribute to her and thanked those who stopped and helped at the scene.
A statement released through the police said: “We are devastated by the tragic loss of our beautiful, warm, fun loving, caring wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend to so many.
“The family would like to thank everyone who stopped and assisted at the scene of the accident and to all the emergency services for the compassion shown towards both Leigh-Anne and the family.
“Thank you to everyone for their well wishes and for all the messages of support.”
The collision happened on the A96 near Dramlachs, just over a mile south-east of Fochabers shortly before 8.40am on Tuesday.
The young mother was the driver and sole occupant of a grey Peugeot 2008. The male driver and passenger from the Ford Transit van suffered non-life threatening injuries, while the male driver of the Audi A3 was uninjured.
Sergeant Scott Deans of the road policing department said: “Our thoughts at this sad time are with the families of those involved in this collision.
“We have spoken to several witnesses but would still like to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision, has dash-cam footage of that area at that time, or if they have seen any of the vehicles involved near that location around the time of the collision, who has not yet come forward.”
