A man has died in a road smash in Aberdeenshire.
The two-car collision happened on the B9077 at Kirkton of Durris, Banchory, at around 1.45pm on Saturday.
Police said a 66-year-old man died following the crash, which involved a blue Seat Leon and a grey Renault Captur – which had been involved in a non-injury collision a short time earlier.
Officers closed the road as investigation works took place.
Sergeant Peter Henderson said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of those involved in this collision.
“An investigation is under way and I appeal to anyone who has not yet spoken to my officers and either witnessed the collision or saw the Seat Leon earlier, to contact police on 101.
“Likewise, anyone who may have dashcam footage which could assist our enquiries is urged to come forward.”
