News / Local Special send off for North-east schoolboy killed after being hit by van By Reporter 22/04/2017, 10:59 am Dylan Ritchie of Laggan, Badenoch with his Subaru Impreza which along with others will be leading the funeral procession for Kieran McQuillan. More than 20 blue performance cars are set to give a schoolboy killed in a road tragedy a special send off. Kieran McQuillan was killed earlier this month after being struck by a van on Elgin’s Brechan Rig. His devastated family formed plans to give the seven-year-old a special send off, and appealed for two blue Subaru cars to lead his cortege. But the request touched hearts across Scotland, and motorists from far and wide are now planning on bringing their vehicles to Elgin for the funeral. The funeral for the New Elgin Primary School pupil will take place on Friday at Elgin Town Hall at 1.30pm before going on to Lossiemouth cemetery.
