Davie Moir named as pedestrian killed in lorry crash

Tributes have been paid to a pedestrian who was killed after being hit by a lorry in Aberdeenshire.

Farmer Davie Moir, 64, died after the collision on the Cuminestown to Fyvie road at South Teuchar Farm on Sunday.

Mr Moir's family described him as a loving family man with a "passion for farming".

Police are continuing their investigation into the crash and have asked for witnesses to come forward.

In a statement, Mr Moir's family said he was "a loving partner to Ingrid and a much-loved father, father-in-law, grandfather, brother and friend to many".

"His passion was farming and he had lived and worked on the farm at South Teuchar nearly all his life," the statement read.

"He loved the local area, spending time outdoors, spending time with his family and working on the farm.

"When he wasn't working he was a very keen bridge player and was a popular member at local meetings. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him."

Sgt Neil Morrison, from Police Scotland, said: "This is a particularly tragic incident and my thoughts and sympathies go out to Mr Moir's family and friends at this difficult time.

"Our inquiries are still at an early stage, and I am keen to trace and speak to the driver of a tractor, possibly a green John Deere, who may have stopped following the collision and possibly offered assistance at the scene."
