A man has died in a one-car crash on the A90 in Aberdeenshire.
His silver Ford Focus crashed near the B974 Fettercairn junction at about 6.10am on Monday.
The driver died at the scene and the road was closed until around 1.10pm to allow for investigations to take place.
Sergeant Peter Henderson, of the road policing unit, said: “Our inquiries are at an early stage and I wish to thank those motorists who stopped and helped at the scene of this tragic incident.
“I appeal to any further witnesses who have not already spoken to police, or who may have dashcam footage of the crash, to contact us on 101.”
