A 38-year-old man has died following a two-car crash in Aberdeenshire.

The collision happened on the B999 Pettymuick to Pitmedden Bridge, near Udny Station, a few miles from Ellon, at about 16:45 on Friday.

The man who died was driving a silver Honda Jazz. The 73-year-old man driving the other car, a grey VW Golf, was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with non-life threatening injuries.

The road was closed for several hours for investigation work.

Sgt Stuart Lawrence, of Police Scotland, said: "We would like to speak to any drivers who may have seen the incident, or the immediate aftermath, but continued on with their journey.

"I would also appeal to anyone who saw either vehicle prior to the incident to contact us. They may have information which could help the investigation."
