An Aberdeen musician has died in a crash on a North-east road.
The male driver of a red Vauxhall Astra , named locally as musician Nathan Gunn, died from his injuries after his vehicle collided with a Stagecoach bus.
The smash happened at around 6.20pm on Friday on the A93 Ballater to Braemar road at Bridge of Gairn.
Road policing Sergeant Peter Henderson said: “Inquiries are ongoing and we have already spoken with a number of witnesses.
“I would ask that anyone who has not already given their details to police and who saw either vehicle in the area to please get in touch.
“Likewise if motorists believe they may have dashcam footage which would assist our inquiries, I would urge you to come forward.”
Nathan, 30, was well-known in the music scene playing bass for Aberdeen band Estrella alongside his brothers Paul and Luke and friend Leo McPherson.
A spokeswoman for Stagecoach North Scotland said: “Our immediate concerns are for the welfare of those involved.
“Safety is our highest priority. We are assisting police with their inquiries into the incident as well as carrying out our own investigation into the circumstances.”
