A 38-year-old male has died following a two vehicle collision on the B999 Aberdeen to Pitmedden road near Udny Station.
The collision occurred at approximately 4.45pm on Friday, October 6.
The driver of a silver Honda Jazz sadly died of his injuries and a 73-year-old male driver of a grey VW Golf was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with non-life threatening injuries.
The Scottish Ambulance Service and Scottish Fire and Rescue were also in attendance and the road was closed for several hours to allow for collision investigation.
Sergeant Stuart Lawrence from the North East Division Road Policing Unit said: "I can confirm that a 38-year-old male has died as a result of the two vehicle collision. My thoughts are with his family and friends at this tragic time.
"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.
