Woman dies after three-car collision in Fife


A woman has died and three other people were injured in a three-car crash in Fife.

The collision happened on the A911 near Glenrothes in the area known locally as Blue Bridge at around 1.15pm on Saturday.

Police Scotland said a grey Peugeot and a blue Vauxhall heading west were involved in the crash with a black Honda travelling east.

The 73-year-old woman driving the Peugeot was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, where she died of her injuries on Sunday morning.

A 70-year-old woman was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee with serious injuries, as was a 78-year-old man with minor injuries.

A 73-year-old woman was taken to Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy with serious injuries.

Sergeant Ewan Pearce, of Fife’s road policing unit, said: “Tragically as a result of the collision a lady has lost her life and our thoughts are with her family and friends at this difficult time.

“I would ask anyone who may have been travelling on the A911 at the time of the collision on Saturday afternoon and who witnessed what happened to come forward to assist our investigation.

“Anyone who may have dash-cam footage of the vehicles immediately prior to the collision, and has not yet spoken to officers, is asked to get in touch to provide this at their earliest opportunity.”

The road was closed for around six hours to allow collision investigation work to take place at the scene.
