Police have issued an appeal for information after several motorists crashed into a “large amount” of boulders left lying on a north-east road.
Officers were forced to block South Deeside Road between Leggart Terrace and the A957 for around three hours this evening so that the debris could be removed.
They said “a number” of collisions had taken place with drivers crashing into the rocks.
It is thought they had fallen from a vehicle passing through the area at around 4pm.
Police are asking anyone with information or dash-cam footage to contact them on 101.
Pc Simon Anderson said: “We would like to thank road users for their patience while the road was closed so it could be cleared and further incidents avoided.
“Inquiries are continuing and I would ask anyone with information or dash-cam footage who has not yet come forward to get in touch.
“We are particularly keen to speak to anyone who has seen a vehicle in the vicinity, carrying such a load at the time.”
