A man has died in hospital after a crash between a car and a lorry with the HGV driver arrested.
At around 9.55am on Saturday, police were called to reports of a collision involving a blue Nissan Qashqai car and a white lorry travelling on the A90 near to Crimond.
Emergency services attended and the driver of the car, a 43-year-old man, was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary by ambulance where he later died.
The passenger of the car, a 46-year-old woman, was released from hospital with no serious injuries.

“I would also appeal to anyone who was in the area around the time of the collision to check their dash cam for footage as it could assist us in our investigation.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 0967 of November 18.”
