POLICE today appealed for witnesses after a crash involving a car and tractor left a man and woman in hospital with serious injuries.
The incident happened on the A944, just west of Dunecht, at around 2.30pm on Saturday.
The road was closed for almost 10 hours and diversions were put in place via Sauchen as police carried out investigations.
A man and a woman were cut free from the car and were taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
Police Scotland today confirmed the man is still in a life-threatening condition following the crash while the woman is in a serious but stable condition.
The driver of the tractor suffered minor injuries in the collision.
Roads Policing Sgt Steve Milne said: “We are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision or either vehicles prior to the collision to contact us on 101.
“It is understood a small 4×4 may have stopped directly after the accident in the Eastbound carriageway and the sole occupant may have seen the collision. We would appeal for the driver to contact us.”
