A man has died after being struck by a bus on the main road between Aberdeen and Dundee.
As reported in the Evening Express, emergency services were called to the A92 near Newtonhill at about 9.45am on Sunday after a person was struck by a silver single-decker coach.
The incident, which also involved a white Mazda car, took place on the southbound section of the road.
The bus was carrying pupils from the Oban High School Pipe Band back home after they attended the Trad Music Awards in Aberdeen.
The A92 was closed for more than 12 hours as police investigated the collision.
On Monday, the force confirmed that a 69-year-old man had died in the incident.
Sergeant Scott Deans, from the Road Policing Unit, said: “This incident is completely tragic and our thoughts are with those involved. One death on our roads is one too many and the heartbreak that is left behind is far-reaching.
“Inquiries are continuing into the incident and I would ask anyone with information or dash cam footage who has not yet come forward to please get in touch.
“We are particularly keen to trace an orange Ford Focus and a purple motor car that passed the scene around the time of the collision.”
