Three cars and a lorry collided on a notorious stretch of road near Fraserburgh yesterday.
Traffic came to a standstill after the four-vehicle crash at the Cortes junction, on the A952 Fraserburgh to Aberdeen road, at about 4pm.
One person had to be cut free from the wreckage of their vehicle, which had overturned onto its roof.
Nobody was seriously injured, however.
It is understood that one person was described as having an arm injury, while another hurt their back.
Police at the scene began diverting traffic onto the A90 route past the wrecks of a grey Vauxhall Zafira, silver Renault Clio and silver Vauxhall Astra at about 5pm.
The lorry, of which there was no description, was not in view.
The Cortes junction has been the scene of several crash crashes in recent months.
In February, a local woman’s car landed in a nearby field when she was hit by a van on an unlisted road near the black spot.
Jill Chandler was left with rib injuries and had to be cut free from her red Fiat Punto.
And in October last year a G4S fan ended up on its side when its driver mounted the junction’s central reservation.
All three occupants of the prisoner transport vehicle had to be taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary as a precaution.
