THE Crown Office has said that no action will be taken over the death of a North-east man on the A90.
Barry McRae, 34, was hit by a car on the Aberdeen to Dundee road, near Stracathro.
Mr McRae, of Catterline, near Stonehaven, died following the accident.
The incident happened at around 2.30am on Friday, August 21.
After the businessman’s death a report was submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
However, a spokesman from the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service today said: “The Procurator Fiscal has received a report in connection with the death of a 34-year-old male near Stracathro in Angus on August 21, 2015.
“After careful consideration of the facts and circumstances of the case, the Procurator Fiscal concluded that no further action is required.
“The family have been informed of this decision.”
The A90 was closed for more than 12 hours after the incident as crash investigators worked to determine what happened.
The route was closed south of Stracathro from 2.45am.
Rush-hour commuters, including those travelling between Aberdeen and Dundee, were diverted away from the scene via Brechin and Edzell, the diversion sending them along the A92 coast road.
Police set up a forensics tent across the central reservation while they worked to establish the circumstances of the crash.
A police probe was launched with officers appealing for information.
