    Tributes to popular hairdresser killed in road traffic accident

    By David Brown on September 6, 2010

    A Scottish teenager has been killed following a road traffic accident in rural Buchan, north-west of Aberdeen.

    Laura Thomas died when her black Ford Ka hit another vehicle on the A981 Fraserburgh to New Deer road. Four passengers in the car were seriously hurt and taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, reports the Press and Journal. Their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

    Firefighters used cutting equipment to free the five people from the vehicle. Police said that 19-year-old Miss Thomas, who lived in a flat in Rosehearty but was originally from Bristol, was declared dead at the scene. The accident happened at a bend in the road, about a mile-and-a-half south of Memsie just after midnight yesterday. Miss Thomas’s car was travelling north when it collided with a silver Renault Megane, coming in the opposite direction.

    The cause of the crash has not yet been determined. The driver of the other vehicle is understood to have escaped without serious injury.

    A police spokesman said: “The road was closed for eight hours while we carried out a thorough inspection. “Obviously, we are trying to determine what went wrong and would ask for any witnesses or anyone with information to get in touch.”
