Tributes were paid to a “loving father and husband” who died in a horrific accident on the A90.
Frederick Menzies was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident a mile south of St Fergus, Aberdeenshire.
The 77-year-old was driving a blue Kia Ceed at around 3:15pm on Wednesday when it collided with a white Citroen Relay van.
The 60-year-old woman who was driving the van was admitted to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with non-life-threatening injuries.
The beloved grandfather’s family have now paid tribute following the tragedy.
In a statement, they said: “Fred was a loving father and husband who was loved by his grandchildren.
“We would appreciate the understanding of the public that we would rather mourn in private.”
Police continue to investigate the tragic crash and are urging anyone with information to come forward.
Sergeant Peter Henderson of the North East Road Policing Unit said: “Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this collision.”
“We continue to work to establish the full circumstances and urge anyone with information or dashcam footage to get in touch.
“Anyone with information can call 101 and quote the reference number 2435 dated June 28.”
