One person has been cut free from a vehicle on the busiest road through the Mearns following a crash.
Two cars collided on the A90 Dundee to Aberdeen road near North Water Bridge – at the border between Angus and Aberdeenshire – at about 4pm.
Police, firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene.
Two men suffered minor injuries in the crash.
A third person was cut free from one of the vehicles by firefighters. Their condition is not currently known.
Fire and rescue teams used hydraulic cutting gear, a hose reel jet, small tools and a trauma bag on arrival
The road was closed southbound but reopened at about 7pm.
A fire and rescue spokeswoman said three appliances – two from Brechin and one from Laurencekirk – were sent to the scene.
She added: “We sent three appliances. The call came in at 3.59pm and the stop message came in at 5.12pm.”
A police spokeswoman said: “Two men suffered minor injuries. A third is being cut free from the car. The road is closed at present.”
A diversion was in place via the A937 Laurencekirk to Marykirk road.
Traffic Scotland warned motorists to “expect delays” and advised motorists to use an alternative route and allow extra time for their journey.
The road reopened just before 7pm and traffic was said to be running well.
