Inspector Lorraine Mackie of the Road Policing Unit said: “Our enquiries are continuing to establish the full circumstances of what happened. Sadly, a man died and our thoughts are with his family and friends.

“I would ask anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or who may have dash-cam footage, and has not yet spoken to or provided this information to officers, to contact us as soon as possible.  We are keen to trace the driver of an HGV who would have been travelling west on the A944 prior to the collision. The driver may be able to assist with enquiries.

“The road re-opened at 10.30pm. I would like to thank members of the public for their patience while we carried out our investigation into this serious collision.”

“Anyone with information should call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 1153 of 15 September, 2022.”
