A man killed in a two-car crash on a main road between Midlothian and the Scottish Borders has been described as a “much-loved and devoted father”.
Colin MacDonald was in a Toyota Auris travelling north on the A68 in the Soutra area on Saturday evening when it collided with a Porsche Macan heading south.
The 57-year-old, from Coldstream, died as a result of the incident.
In a statement, Mr MacDonald’s family said: “Colin was a much-loved and devoted father of two sons, and a loving partner to Yvonne for 20 years. We are absolutely devastated by our loss.
“He will be very sadly missed by all our family and we will treasure every memory we shared together.
“We would ask that our privacy is respected at this very sad and difficult time.”
A 51-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy in the Porsche were treated at the scene by ambulance staff but they were not seriously injured.
Officers are continuing their inquiries and appealing for witnesses.
Anyone with dash-cam footage is asked to contact officers by calling 101, quoting incident number 3718 of February 22.
