The man, who was driving a white Renault Traffic van, was pronounced dead at the crash site on the A941 between Elgin and Rothes near Longmorn.

Two male passengers, aged 27 and 32, were also hospitalised at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with their condition described as “serious but stable”.

As of 9.40am, the road had been closed for more than 12 hours after the incident - at around 7.55pm last night (Monday, June 17).

Drivers travelling between Rothes and Elgin have been diverted along side roads through Clackmarras and Orton.

Traffic officers also appealed for information following the incident, encouraging those who saw the crash or have dashcam footage to come forward.

Sergeant Sarah Ritchie offered the service’s thoughts to the family of the driver who lost his life.

She also praised members of the public, who stopped in the wake of the crash to provide help.

“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the man who died and all those involved and I would like to thank members of the public who stopped to assist,” she said.

“Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances and we are appealing to anyone who has not already spoken to officers to get in touch if you can assist.

“If you were driving in the area and have dash-cam footage that could help with our investigation then please contact us.”

Anyone who can help is asked to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 3387 of Monday, June 17, 2024.
