EMERGENCY services rushed to the main Montrose to Brechin road at about 4.15 p.m. last Tuesday.

They were responding to a 999 call that a car had left the carriageway on a straight between House of Dun and Gilrivie Farm, and rolled into a field, finishing on its side.

Despite the extensive damage to the Nissan Almera estate, and the trail of debris it left in its wake, the two occupants were described by the emergency services as “walking wounded”.

The 71-year-old driver was treated for a head knock.
