Aberdeen: The crash happened on the A92.

A 91-year-old woman has died following a crash between a van and a car in Aberdeen.

The pensioner and two other people were hurt in the smash, which happened on the A92, North Anderson Drive, at around 1pm on Tuesday, January 21.

The collision – involving a silver Citroen Relay van and blue Peugeot 208 car – happened at the junction with Ashgrove Road West.

The pensioner was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, where she subsequently died as a result of her injuries.

A 60-year-old woman and a 46-year-old man were also taken to hospital as a precaution.

The road was closed in both directions for four hours, with the southbound lane closed for a further four for investigation works to take place.

Investigating officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward and are keen to trace the drivers of a white Fiat 500 and white BMWi3 who were in the area at the time.

Sergeant Craig McNeill, of Aberdeen Road Policing, said: “Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of the woman who was involved in this crash.

“Our enquiries remain ongoing to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident and I would ask anyone who has any information to come forward.

“We are keen to speak to the drivers of a white Fiat 500 and a white BMW i3 who were in the area at the time of the crash.

“I would also ask anyone who has dashcam footage of the area around the time of the crash to get in contact with officers.”
