A MAN has died following a crash between a car and a tractor on a North-east road.
Police today confirmed that 58-year-old Douglas Edwardson, head of housing at Aberdeenshire Council, has died following a collision on the A944 Dunecht to Alford road on Saturday, December 5.
The crash happened at around 2.30pm and involved a Seat Leon and a tractor.
His family have released a brief statement through Police Scotland.
It said: “Douglas’ family are devastated to confirm that Douglas has died.
“They are very grateful for all the support they have received, in particular from all the staff at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.”
