Police have staged a reconstruction after issuing a fresh appeal for information about a fatal road collision.
Mary Allan, 83, known as Molly, died after being struck by a lorry on the roundabout at St Machar Drive and King Street in Aberdeen on the morning of September 10.
Police were back at the scene yesterday morning to stage a reconstruction in the hope it would further their investigation.
Mrs Allan was a popular member of the Bridge of Don community and was also well known throughout Seaton.
She had been visiting the TSB bank on King Street just before she was struck by the heavy goods vehicle.
After her death, her loved ones described her as a “well kent” face in the Bridge of Don area.
Her daughter Donna Emslie said the whole family was “devastated” and was still “in shock”.
She described her mother as a “larger than life” character who was much loved.
Family and friends turned out in their numbers to pay their last respects at her funeral at Gilchrist Chapel in Kaimhill last Wednesday.
During the reconstruction a number of police officers could be seen at the St Machar roundabout and surrounding area carrying out inquiries.
Seaton councillor Alexander McLellan today told the Evening Express: “The reconstruction exercise carried out is incredibly important in terms of establishing the circumstances of the road traffic incident.
“I would join the police in encouraging anyone who has information about this incident that could be useful to them to get in touch.”
While the reconstruction went on, King Street was closed to traffic southbound at the River Don and a number of other restrictions were placed on adjoining roads, causing some traffic delays.
Bridge of Don councillor John Reynolds said any delays experienced by motorists would be outweighed by the benefits of the reconstruction.
“This all has to do with road safety for the future and some people may criticise it, but I have had no complaints from my own constituents,” said Mr Reynolds.
“With any accident you have to establish why this accident happened.
“If you do not undergo any investigation you have no chance to prevent this in the future.
“This is the police’s way of saying ‘We want to try and ensure this never happens again’.”
Road Policing Sergeant Scott Deans added: “Our thoughts remain with the family of the woman who has tragically died.
“Our inquiries into the incident are continuing and we would urge anyone who witnessed what happened but has not yet spoken to the police to please get in touch by calling 101 and quoting reference number 1256 of September 10.”
