Appeal for witnesses after fatal two-car road crash
A male driver died following the collision on the B999 in Aberdeenshire on Friday.
Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal two-car collision on a rural road in Aberdeenshire.
A 38-year-old man died of his injuries as a result of the crash on the B999 Aberdeen to Pitmedden road near Udny Station at around 4.45pm on Friday.
He was driving a silver Honda Jazz.
Another male driver, aged 73, of a grey VW Golf was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
The Scottish Ambulance Service and Scottish Fire and Rescue service also attended, and the road was closed for several hours to allow for collision investigation.
The body of the man who died has still to be formally identified.
Sergeant Stuart Lawrence from the north-east road policing unit said: "I can confirm that a 38-year-old male has died as a result of the two vehicle collision on the B999 Aberdeen to Pitmedden road near Udny Station.
"My thoughts are with his family and friends at this tragic time.
"We would like to speak to any drivers who may have seen the incident, or the immediate aftermath, but continued on with their journey.
"I would also appeal to anyone who saw either vehicle prior to the incident to contact us. They may have information which could help the investigation."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.
