A child suffered minor injuries after a school bus crashed.
The incident involved a white Mercedes bus and a silver Toyota Hilux on the Drumwhindle Road, just off the A948.
Police and ambulance crews were called to the scene at 4pm yesterday.
It was carrying pupils from Ellon Academy, although an Aberdeenshire Council spokeswoman could not confirm how many.
A child and bus driver sustained minor injuries.
Both were taken to doctors to be treated locally.
Remaining pupils were picked up by parents or an alternative vehicle from the bus company.
