A 34-year-old man has been seriously injured in a two-car crash.
The A947 Aberdeen to Banff road was closed overnight on Friday after the crash, which happened at about 10.05pm between Dyce and Newmachar.
A silver Ford Focus travelling north and a black Fiat 500X, which was going in the opposite direction, collided.
The road was closed by police for six hours, while the vehicles were recovered and the two drivers were taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
Police have since confirmed the Ford driver suffered serious injuries, but non-life threatening, injuries.
The 29-year-old male Fiat driver was treated for a foot injury and later released.
Traffic was given access to the section of the A947 again at around 5.30am on Saturday.
Crash investigation continues
Sergeant Scott Deans, from the roads policing unit, said: “We are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding this collision, and would ask for anyone who was travelling on the A947 between Banff and Dyce at around 10pm on Friday evening to get in touch if they saw what happened.
“Similarly, if you believe you have dashcam footage that captured the incident, then please also contact police immediately.”

“Two men were taken to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for treatment following the incident and the road reopened around 5.30am on Saturday, January 22 after the vehicles were recovered.”
