A force spokesman said: “Police Scotland can confirm they are in attendance on the A937 Montrose to Laurencekirk road close to Marykirk Bridge in relation to a one vehicle road traffic collision which occurred in the early hours.

“The road remains closed whilst investigations are carried out.”

Meanwhile, four people are being treated in hospital after a head-on crash between two cars in North Ayrshire.

A 71-year-old man was driving a silver Vauxhall Corsa north on Eglinton Road, Ardrossan, when it was in collision with a silver Ford Focus travelling in the opposite direction.

The driver of the Corsa and his 69-year-old female passenger were taken to University Hospital Crosshouse with the 78-year-old driver of the Focus and his 69-year-old female passenger.
