Mr Anderson was a pedestrian when he was involved in a collision with a HGV around 10am on Tuesday, April 26 on the unclassified road, known locally as Birnie Road.

Emergency services attended but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The male driver of the HGV was uninjured.

The road was closed for around nine hour hours to allow for a full collision investigation to take place.

The family of Mr Anderson said: “He will be missed a lot.”

Sergeant Craig McNeill, of Inverurie Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with David’s family at this difficult time.

“Our enquiries so far have established that David is believed to have travelled southwards from the Dr Gray’s Hospital area via the Edgar Road area to Birnie Road near Elgin Golf Course.

“David is described as being slim build, average height with a bushy ginger beard and, at the time, was wearing a black and white striped top, grey tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.

“Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of the crash and we are appealing for anyone with any information, or who may have seen the him prior to the crash and has not already spoken to officers, to get in touch.

“I would also urge anyone with dash cam footage which captures either David or the vehicle to get in contact, as they may be able to assist our enquiries.”

Anyone with any information, should contact police on 101, quoting incident 0804 of 26 April.
