Pensioner dies days after Fife road crash


A 69-year-old man has died just days after he was involved in a car crash in Fife.

The pensioner was a passenger in a blue Yaris which was in collision with another vehicle on the A912 on Sunday morning.

Emergency services attended and the man and the Yaris’ driver, a 71-year-old woman, were taken Perth Royal Infirmary for treatment.

They were later released but the man was found dead at an address in Glenrothes in the early hours of this morning.

The 35-year-old driver of the other vehicle, a silver Mercedes Sprinter, was uninjured.

The accident happened at 7.40am, just south of the junction that leads to the disused Balcanquhal Quarry.

Road policing officers are now investigating the circumstances of the accident and are appealing for witnesses.

Police Sergeant Ewan Pearce said, “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the gentleman’s family at this time.

“We are now investigating this collision and I would ask anyone who was on A912, near to the disused Balcanquhal Quarry on Sunday and has any information that can assist our inquiries, to please get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
