Driver dies after Aberlour smash

Police have appealed for witnesses after a 71-year-old man died when his car hit another car and a lorry in Moray.

Emergency services had been called out to the scene on Queens Road in Aberlour at about 11:40 on Tuesday.

Grampian Police said the driver of a silver Subaru, who was from the area, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Subaru had struck a black car and then an articulated lorry which had been parked while making deliveries.

The 63-year-old male driver of the black Chrysler was uninjured, as was the 40-year-old driver of the lorry.

Insp Scott Mann said: "Our inquiries are progressing well and our collision investigators have carried out a detailed scene examination. This resulted in closure of part of Queens Road for around five hours.

"We would like to speak with anyone who witnessed the collision or its immediate aftermath, or indeed anyone who saw a silver car being driven on Queens Road around the time of the collision.

"We're aware that there were several pedestrians in the vicinity at that time."
