Police Scotland is appealing for witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision involving a motorcycle and a car at around 9.10am on Thursday September 8, 2016 near South Teuchar.
The collision happened on the unclassified Cuminestown to Fyvie road near South Teuchar. Were you travelling along that road around the time of the crash and did you see either of the vehicles, a red Suzuki GSX bike and blue SsangYong Tivoli car, before the collision?
The 46-year-old male rider, who was local to the area, sadly died. Meanwhile the 50-year-old female driver of the other vehicle sustained minor injuries and did not require hospital treatment.
The road was closed for over six hours whilst investigations took place but has now been re-opened.
Sergeant Colin Matheson said
First and foremost our thoughts are obviously very much with the family and friends of the man who sadly died in this dreadful collision that took place on a quiet rural road.
I would like to appeal to anyone who may have seen the incident and has not yet spoken to Police to please come forward with any information. Likewise anyone who may have seen either vehicle in the moments leading up to the collision should also get in touch with Police on 101 as we try to piece together exactly what happened.
