A male pedestrian has died after being hit by a car in Moray, police have confirmed. A 66-year-old pedestrian has died after being hit by a taxi on the A96 near Elgin in Moray, police have said.
The accident happened on the A96 between Lhanbryde and Elgin at about 0120 GMT on Sunday. Lawrence Osborne, of Lhanbryde, was struck by a silver VW Passat taxi near the Elginshill junction at Barmuckity at about 0125 GMT on Sunday.
Grampian Police officers closed off a part of the road and put in diversions following the death of the man, who has yet to be named. The 46-year-old male driver of the taxi was treated in hospital for shock. His two passengers were uninjured.
An investigation has been launched and police have appealed for witnesses to the incident to come forward. Mr Osborne had lived in the Moray and Inverness areas for some time and moved to Lhanbryde about two years ago.
Police said he had no known family members.
Sgt David Pirie of the roads policing department said: "Our inquiries into the circumstances surrounding this tragic collision are continuing.
"We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have encountered Mr Osborne walking along the A96 prior to the collision or who may have seen him within Elgin, or elsewhere, during Saturday evening.
"Mr Osborne was wearing dark trousers, dark bomber style jacket, black tammy and white trainers."
The road was closed for six hours to allow investigators to carry out a detailed examination of the scene.
