A man died and a woman and child are being treated in hospital following a two car collision in Aberdeen on Tuesday evening (12 August).

Emergency services responded to the incident on the city’s Charleston flyover shortly after 6pm.

Three Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) appliances were sent following a request for assistance from ambulance control.

Station Manager Graeme Goonan, the incident commander, said: “Two crews were mobilised from Altens along with a third from North Anderson Drive.

“They worked closely with paramedics to provide emergency treatment to the three casualties, who were all taken to hospital by ambulance.

“Sadly, we later heard the man had died. The thoughts of all the emergency responders will be with those affected by this tragedy.”

Police Scotland have asked for anyone who may have any information regarding the crash to contact them by calling 101.

Sergeant Rob Warnock of the Aberdeenshire and Moray Road Policing Unit said: “This is a tragic incident that has sadly resulted in a 26-year-old man losing his life.

“Investigations into the cause of the collision are at an early stage and I would urge anyone who witnessed the collision and hasn't spoken to police to do so.

“Additionally, anyone who may have seen the vehicles prior to the incident is asked to contact us.”
