A driver had to be cut out of their vehicle by the fire service after an accident on a north-east road.
Four fire engines were called to the crash involving a lorry and a van on the A90 southbound at Fordoun at around 9.30am following the incident.
Police and the ambulance service were also in attendance and the road remains closed in both directions, with diversions in place.
The driver of the van had to be freed by the fire service’s heavy rescue unit after becoming trapped in the vehicle.
They were then taken by ambulance to hospital, though the extent of any injuries is unknown.
