A man has died and a woman has been seriously injured after their car was involved in a crash with a lorry in Angus.
Emergency services were called to the scene of the accident on the A92 St Cyrus to Montrose road, at Kinnaber, on Saturday afternoon after a lorry was in collision with a Kia Picanto car.
The 53-year-old male driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene while his female passenger was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee after suffering serious injuries.
Sergeant John Learmonth, of Police Scotland’s road policing unit at Perth, said: “Our thoughts are with the deceased’s family at this tragic time.
