Pedestrians, including a mother and child, were injured in two separate crashes in the north-east yesterday.
A woman and child sustained minor injuries after being hit by a vehicle in Inverurie.
Shortly before 9am a reversing van collided with the pedestrians at Martin Brae, near Kellands School.
A Scottish Ambulance spokesman said: “We received a call at 08:51 hours yesterday to attend an incident on Martin Brae in Inverurie.
“We dispatched one ambulance to the scene and transported a woman and a child to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.”
Meanwhile, a woman sustained minor injuries when she was hit by a car at Jesmond Drive, Aberdeen, in the afternoon.
Police were called to the scene at 12.55pm with an ambulance and special operations team also in attendance.
Just a few minutes after the Jesmond Drive crash, emergency services were called to a collision on the B9170 Inverurie to Oldmeldrum castle.
The incident took place just outside the entrance to Barra Castle in Aberdeenshire.
Two vehicles – a gold Vauxhall Astra and a Volkswagen Tiguan – blocked the road in the aftermath of the crash while police cleared the scene.
One motorist sustained minor injuries.
An ambulance spokesman said: “We received a call at 1258 hours to attend a road traffic collision on the B9170 near Barra Castle.
“We dispatched two ambulances to the scene and transported one female patient to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.”
