A WOMAN was cut free from a car after a crash on North-east road.
The two-vehicle collision on the A947 Turriff to Banff road, near King Edward, blocked the road in both directions.
The woman, who was driving a white Mazda 2, was said to be suffering from neck and back injuries, with the Scottish Ambulance Service also assessing leg injuries at the scene.
She was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary to be treated. A Police Scotland spokesman said her injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
Two males who were in the other car, a blue BMW 323, were also taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Police were called to the crash at 6.15pm yesterday and required assistance from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to help free the trapped woman.
The road was blocked with a diesel spill also causing problems in the area. The road reopened at 7.55pm.
