AN INVESTIGATION was today under way after a man was left fighting for his life following a crash.
The 30-year-old was airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after suffering life threatening injuries in the two-car smash.
The collision between a silver Porsche and a grey Toyota Hilux took place on the B976 Birse to Finzean road on Saturday just after 7.15pm.
Police are now appealing for information.
The crash happened near the junction with Finzean Old School.
The seriously injured man was driving the Porsche while the occupant of the Toyota Hilux was uninjured.
Sergeant Rob Warnock, from the Aberdeenshire and Moray Road Policing Unit, said: “Inquiries are at an early stage and I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident or saw the silver Porsche or the Toyota Hilux prior to the incident to contact the police.
“I would also ask anyone who has any information which would assist our investigation to contact Police Scotland.”
