A woman was recovering last night after a smash near a notorious accident blackspot.
The motorist suffered a blow to the head when her red BMW was involved in a collision with an articulated lorry on the busy A90 Fraserburgh to Peterhead road, near Lonmay.
The accident happened just after 11.10am outside the Caledonian Stone Company.
The woman was taken by ambulance to Peterhead Hospital for treatment to a head injury, which was not believed to be serious.
It is understood her vehicle struck the back of the lorry as it was turning off the road.
The driver of the HGV was uninjured.
A force spokesman said the road was partly blocked for a short time until both vehicles were moved off the carriageway.
Last year, Lonmay residents mounted a campaign for extra traffic calming measures following a spate of crashes.
In November, locals met with transport chiefs to discuss a range of possible options for the stretch.
Bear Scotland road safety manager Alan Campbell told residents there were plans to instal an advisory 30mph limit at a sharp bend in the road.
The talks followed a two-car crash in September which claimed the life of a 42-year-old Fraserburgh man.
In June that year, a 40-tonne lorry fell onto its side and ploughed into the front room of a local couple’s roadside home.
On New Year’s Day, a 41-year-old driver from Fraserburgh died in an accident on the same stretch of road.
