A motorcyclist is in hospital with serious injuries after a crash with a van on the A90 in Aberdeenshire.

The 46-year-old man’s green BMW R NineT motorbike collided with a white Fian Fiorino van northbound on the major road at the junction with the A937 near Laurencekirk at around 2.10pm on Friday.

The 53-year-old man driving the van suffered minor injuries in the crash and both men were taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

The A90 was closed for around ten hours for a full collision investigation to take place.

Sergeant Craig McNeill, of Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit, said: “A man has sustained serious injuries as a result of this crash and we are appealing for information to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.

“I would ask if you were driving in the area at the time and may have seen the van or the motorbike prior to the crash that you come forward and speak to officers.

“If there are any motorists with dashcam footage that were in the area around that time, please get in touch with police.”

Anyone with information can contact police via 101, quoting incident number 1879 of July 2.
