The Press and Journal (Aberdeen) - - NEWS -

A driver was air­lifted to hospi­tal yes­ter­day with se­ri­ous in­juries af­ter the ve­hi­cle she was trav­el­ling in col­lided with an­other car.

The woman, who has not been iden­ti­fied by po­lice, is un­der­stood to have been trav­el­ling in a red Rover 25 which was in­volved in the crash with a grey VW Pas­sat on the B9031 Sand­haven to Rose­hearty road.

She was cut out of the car by fire crews and stretchered onto an air am­bu­lance, which took her to Aberdeen Royal In­fir­mary.

Yes­ter­day, a spokes­woman for the po­lice could not pro­vide in­for­ma­tion on the oc­cu­pants of both cars, but said the woman who had been taken to hospi­tal had suf­fered “se­ri­ous” in­juries.

She added: “There has been a se­ri­ous col­li­sion be­tween Sand­haven and Rose­hearty, and po­lice are in at­ten­dance.

“It was re­ported at about 1.20pm. There is one fe­male with se­ri­ous in­juries.”

The road was closed for sev­eral hours. Two fire ap­pli­ances were also sent from Fraser­burgh, with tools, cut­ting equip­ment and sta­bil­i­sa­tion gear used to make the scene safe.

An­other pa­tient was treated by paramedics and is be­lieved to have suf­fered mi­nor in­juries.

It is un­known how the ve­hi­cles came to crash into each other. Nearby res­i­dents said they had not seen a col­li­sion take place.
