The A90 Dundee to Aberdeen road is blocked following a crash.
Police and paramedics were called to the A937 Laurencekirk to Marykirk road at about 7.30am following a two-vehicle collision at about 7.20am on Thursday.
A section of the neighbouring A90 has been blocked northbound as a result of the crash.
One person is said to have suffered hand injuries in the incident.
A police spokeswoman said: “I can say that we were called and officers are in attendance at the A937 at Laurencekirk after a crash involving two vehicles.
“Ambulance is in attendance.”
Traffic Scotland posted: “A90 Northbound is restricted at Laurencekirk due to road traffic incident.”
The junction between the A937 and the A90 is a notorious accident blackspot.
In recent years it was the subject of a successful campaign for safety improvements, with a flyover due to be built at the spot.
A “full diamond” grade-separated junction is planned to take the realigned A937 above the dual carriageway.
