The driver, a 29-year-old man, was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
The road was closed as investigators carried out inquiries and examined the scene, and police appealed for information.
Sergeant Scott Deans said: “I am appealing to any motorists who were on the road around the time of the incident to contact us.
“In particular, I would ask anyone with a dash cam to check it as the footage may be able to assist our inquiries.

The crash, which involved a black Mazda and a red Honda, happened at the junction of Thurlow Road and Seafield Street in Nairn at around 4.50pm on Thursday.
Police Sergeant Alasdair MacKay of the Road Policing Unit said: “The man was taken to Raigmore Hospital for treatment for serious injuries and has now passed away.
