A man is in hospital with serious injuries after an accident on the A92 between Montrose and St Cyrus last night.
The crash which occurred at 6.30pm resulted in the closure of roads leading to Montrose.
The 64-year-old male driver of a Ford C-Max is in hospital with serious injuries and the other motorist sustained minor injuries following the crash.
Scottish Fire and Rescue confirmed two fire appliances were sent from Montrose and firefighters worked with paramedics to free the driver of the Ford C-Max, who was trapped, using hydraulic cutting gear.
The two car collision has sparked a police appeal for witnesses.
A Tayside division spokesperson said: “Officers from Police Scotland along with other emergency services attended near to the Kinnaber Road junction after a Land Rover Discovery travelling northwards and a Ford C-Max car travelling southbound were involved in the collision.
“The 64-year-old male driver of the Ford C-Max was taken to Ninewells Hospital, Dundee with serious injuries. The 34-year-old male driver of the Land Rover sustained minor injuries. The road was closed for several hours whilst an investigation into the circumstances of the collision was carried out.
“Officers are particularly keen to trace the driver of a white pick-up style vehicle that was travelling on the A92 at the time of the incident to come forward and contact Police Scotland on 101 to assist officers with their on-going enquiries.
“In addition, anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have seen these vehicles prior to or at the time of the collision should contact Police Scotland on 101 or to speak to any police officer.”
