No charges have been brought in relation to the death of a 22-year-old man who was killed after being struck by a car in Montrose on Sunday evening, police confirmed yesterday.
The police investigation is continuing into the circumstances surrounding the death of the man who has been formally identified as Scott Blake of Montrose.
It is believed that Mr Blake had attended a gig as part of the Montrose Music Festival at the Hillside Hotel and had been walking to the Black Abbot bar to listen to another concert when the accident occurred on Coronation Avenue at about 8.15pm.
Police made a fresh appeal for information about the accident.
The statement said: “Inquiries into the full set of circumstances of the incident are on-going and Tayside Division would appeal for anyone who may have information that could assist officers with their inquiries to contact Tayside Division on 101.
“As with all sudden deaths a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.”
A trauma team from Ninewells Hospital in Dundee was called to tend to Mr Blake but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Several bouquets of flowers have been laid near the spot where he died.
Mr Blake attended Southesk Primary School and Montrose Academy and had two brothers.
Details of his funeral are still to be confirmed.
The Black Abbot in Coronation Way, Montrose, where he worked in the pub kitchen has shut until Thursday as a “mark of respect”.
Hundreds of tributes have been posted online.
One friend said: “He was a lovely, funny, caring lad and made me laugh so many times. He will be missed.”
MoFest organisers have paid their own tribute, saying they were “beyond saddened” by the accident and that their “hearts go out to Scott’s family”.
