Boy, 8, And Woman Die After Crash In Kirkcaldy
An eight-year-old boy and a woman have died after a crash involving a car and a lorry.
The child was a passenger in a Ford Focus travelling on the A92 in Kirkcaldy, Fife, on Monday when the collision happened north of the Redhouse roundabout.
The eight-year-old died at the scene and the 36-year-old woman driving the car was critically injured.
She was taken to the town's Victoria Hospital but died on Tuesday from her injuries.
A nine-year-old boy was seriously hurt in the incident just before 3pm.
He sustained serious injuries to his face and remains in hospital.
Inspector Brenda Sinclair said: "We are still trying to establish exactly what happened and I would ask any motorists who were on the A92 on Monday afternoon and who witnessed this incident to contact police immediately.
"Tragically this collision has resulted in a second death and our thoughts are with the families of everyone involved.
"A full investigation to determine what happened is ongoing and I would reiterate our appeal for witnesses.
"If you saw this collision take place, or if you have information relevant to our inquiries, then please contact police immediately.''
Police said the driver of the Iveco lorry and his passenger were not injured in the crash which closed the route for seven hours.
Anyone with information is asked to contact officers on 101.
