A driver who died on the A90 yesterday has been named as Kieran Innes from Aberdeen.

The accident happened on the dual carriage way, just north of Forfar, and was reported at 7.45am yesterday morning.

It is understood 24-year-old Mr Innes was the only person in the car.

Mr Innes was a former coach with football club Middlefield Wasps, who posted a tribute on their Facebook page.

It reads: “It’s with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes I write this, but today we lost our 2006 coach Kieran Innes in a car crash at the age of 24.

“Kieran also ran our disability football.

“He was a genuine nice guy and would do anything for anyone.

“He loved all his players who will miss him dearly.

“I had the honour of calling this man my mate.

“The wasps family has lost a true gent who will be sorely missed. He loved the wasps.

“Thoughts go to the Innes family.

“As a mark of respect we will be doing a minutes applause at each wasps game this weekend cos Kieran didn’t do silence.

“Fly high buddy.

“Once a wasps always a wasp.”

Enquiries into the full set of circumstances of the incident are on-going and Tayside Division is appealing for anyone who may have information that could assist officers with their enquiries to call 101.

As with all sudden deaths a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
