A blue Toyota Corolla left the main A970 road near Quarff at around 5pm and ended up in a field. The driver escaped uninjured, but they were checked over at the Gilbert Bain Hospital.
The blue light services were then called to a one-vehicle collision on the B9076 road parallel to the Scatsta Airport runway.
The male driver was uninjured and helped from his vehicle by other road users.
The airport’s own fire service attended as did appliance from Brae and Hillswick.
