The incident happened around 8.50 am on Friday on the A947 near Hattoncrook and involved four vehicles: a silver Ford Focus, a black Volkswagen Golf, a white Volkswagen Transporter and a white and green Mercedes truck.

Mr Duncan was pronounced dead at the scene. A 58-year-old man, named locally as Stuart ‘Scooby’ Morrison, a passenger of the VW Transporter, was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with serious injuries. The 24-year male driver of the silver Ford Focus was also taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

In a statement issued through Police Scotland, Mr Duncan’s family said

We are heartbroken that Web was tragically taken from us. He was a loving husband, devoted Dad, Granda, brother and friend. Web will be remembered for his selfless loving nature and will be sorely missed by all.

Tributes to Mr Duncan have been appearing on Social Media since Friday

Friends of Stuart Scooby Morrison have been updating their Social Media profile pictures to include images of Scooby-Doo in support of Stuart and his family at this difficult time.

Road Policing Sergeant Alexander Bowser-Reilly said

Our thoughts remain with the family and friends of Mr Duncan at this difficult time.

Our investigation into the crash continues and I would urge anybody who was driving on the A947 on Friday morning and may have dash-cam footage or witnessed the incident to contact police on 101, quoting incident 0596 of 11 December.
