A woman has died following a one-vehicle crash on a north-east road.
The collision occurred at approximately 3pm today near the entrance to Trump International Golf Links at Menie.
The 38-year-old driver of a black Volkswagen Golf died of her injuries.
The Scottish Ambulance Service and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service were also in attendance.
The road was closed for several hours to allow for investigations.
Sergeant Stuart Lawrence, from the North East Divisional Road Policing Unit, said: “I can confirm that a 38-year-old female has died as a result of the collision. My thoughts are with her family and friends at this tragic time.
“We are keen to trace any drivers who may have been travelling on the road around the time and seen the vehicle prior to the collision. I would ask anyone who has any other information, including dashcam footage, which would assist our investigation to contact Police Scotland on 101.”
