A man in his 70s was taken to hospital following a two-vehicle crash on the A90.
The man, who was the driver in one of the cars, had to be cut free from his vehicle by firefighters following the incident near the Edzell junction at around 4pm yesterday.
The road was closed southbound for around an hour, causing some lengthy tailbacks in the area, although one lane was reopened at around 5pm to alleviate the traffic problems during rush hour.
Following the crash, a man in his 70s was taken to Dundee’s Ninewells Hospital, although the extent of his injuries were not divulged.
Two fire engines, one from Montrose and one from Laurencekirk, were called.
A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said the man was removed from his vehicle using hydraulic cutting equipment and stablising gear.
