A women was in a fatal collision with a lorry on the A947 at the junction with the A920 1/4 mile south east of Oldmeldrum.
Oldmeldrum and Mid-Formartine Councillor Paul Johnston said:
“The fatality at the junction is shocking. This killer road has claimed another victim. It is so sad. There are many people who have suffered from accidents on the A947 and I know they will, like everyone locally have deep sympathies for the family of the women who has tragically died”
“I hope roads officials and the police learn the cause of the collision from the investigation that will follow. If there are lessons to be learnt, I hope Aberdeenshire will address those lessons. This is a deceptive road and despite it being well-engineered, it still has an unacceptable reputation for accidents, both serious and fatal.” said Cllr Johnston.
