A man has been charged after a crash between two cars and a bus which killed three people.
A 34-year-old man, who was the driver of the red Renault Megane involved in the crash, was arrested and charged with road traffic offences, Police Scotland said.
He will appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court later today.
Four people were taken to hospital after the crash which happened on the A90 between Aberdeen and Dundee at Glenbarvie. It happened at about 4.30pm on Tuesday.
None of the passengers in the Citylink bus involved were hurt, but the driver sustained minor injuries.

The driver and another passenger, a woman, were taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after the crash.
The man and woman in the second car to be involved, a Ford B Max, were taken to the same hospital, but their injuries have been described as not life-threatening.
