Woman remains critical after collision

Police Scotland have renewed their appeal for witnesses following a serious road accident at Stirling Village last night.

A 49-year-old woman remains in a critical condition after being struck by a southbound ASCO lorry shortly before 5pm on the main A90 Peterhead to Aberdeen road.

It is understood the woman may have just alighted from a Peterhead-bound bus.

As a result of the collision she was conveyed to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with serious head injuries where she remains in a critical condition. The driver of the lorry was uninjured.

Inspector Ewan Innes from the Aberdeenshire and Moray Division Road Policing Unit said: “Our enquiries are progressing into the circumstances of this collision and I would ask that anyone who may have witnessed the incident to get in touch with us.

“There is a possibility that the injured pedestrian was on a Peterhead bound Stagecoach bus and had alighted from this just prior to the collision, so I would be keen to speak to anyone who may have been on this bus and aware of this female getting off in Boddam.”

He continued “I am also particularly keen to trace the driver of a white Range Rover who may have witnessed the collision.”

The road was closed for approximately seven hours while collision investigator’s carried out an examination of the scene.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to remain anonymous.
