An elderly man is in a serious condition in Ninewells Hospital after a road crash yesterday.
The 84-year-old was involved in a one-vehicle smash on the A928 Petterden to Glamis Road near to Hatton of Ogilvie at about 11.50am.
His burgundy Honda left the road and collided with a wall and a tree.

He was then handed into the care of paramedics who rushed him to hospital in Dundee. Police say the man is continuing to receive treatment for his injuries.
The road was closed for a time while the scene was investigated.
