Police are appealing for witnesses after a car burst into flames on the B979 outside of Aberdeen.
A Ford Fiesta and a Ford Ka were travelling along the stretch of road when the two vehicles collided with one another. No other vehicles were involved in the incident.
Both drivers suffered serious personal injury and were treated at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
The Ford Ka, driven by a 19-year-old man, caught fire following the collision and the motorist was helped free from the vehicle by a passer-by.
A BBC report states that both drivers were alone in their cars at the time of the accident and there were no other casualties.
An investigation into the crash is underway and Police Scotland is asking for anyone who may have been in the area and seen either car prior to the incident, or indeed witnessed the accident, to come forward with any information which may help further the inquiry.
The report does not state if either driver has been released from hospital.
Thompsons wish both parties a swift and complete recovery.
