One man was taken to hospital this morning following a two-vehicle smash on a north-east road.
Police and ambulance crews raced to the A947 Turriff to Banff road at about 10am when reports came in about a collision involving a white transit van and a white Vauxhall Astra.
A spokeswoman for the police said no one was injured in the incident.
“A male has been taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary as a precaution,” she added.
The A947 is one of the most notorious roads in Aberdeenshire.
Recent figures from Aberdeenshire Council show there have been 20 fatal incidents on the route between Aberdeen and Banff since 2005.
And in the past 18 months it has claimed two lives.
A 54-year-old biker was killed in a collision with a car on the road last April.
And in June this year, a 58-year-old man was killed when the car he was travelling in veered off the road and crashed into a house.
