Family’s tribute to ‘devoted dad’ who died in crash Police Scotland

The family of a man who died in a four-vehicle crash in Aberdeenshire have paid tribute to the “loving husband” and “devoted dad”.

Anthony Duncan, a 62-year-old from Turriff, died at the scene of a collision on the A947, near Hattoncrook, on Friday morning.

The incident, which happened around 8.50am, involved a silver Ford Focus, a black Volkswagen Golf, a white Volkswagen Transporter and a white and green Mercedes truck.

Mr Duncan, fondly known as Web, will be remembered for his “selfless loving nature”, his family said.

In a statement issued through police, they said: “We are heartbroken that Web was tragically taken from us. He was a loving husband, devoted dad, granda, brother and friend.

“Web will be remembered for his selfless loving nature and will be sorely missed by all.”

A 58-year-old man, a passenger of the Volkswagen Transporter, was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with serious injuries after the crash.

The 24-year male driver of the silver Ford Focus was also taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

Road policing sergeant Alexander Bowser-Reilly said: “Our thoughts remain with the family and friends of Mr Duncan at this difficult time.

“Our investigation into the crash continues and I would urge anybody who was driving on the A947 on Friday morning and may have dash-cam footage or witnessed the incident to contact police on 101.”
