A pensioner has died after a two-vehicle crash in Fife.

The collision happened at around 3.45pm on Friday April 19 on the A985 at a junction close to the B9037 near High Valleyfield, Dunfermline.

A 54-year-old man driving a green Ford Escort westbound was involved in a crash with a silver Renault Megane being driven by an 84-year-old man who was approaching the road from the Culross direction.

Emergency services attended and the 54-year-old man was taken to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh by air ambulance with serious injuries.

The 84-year-old man was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, where he died from his injuries on Sunday.

Sergeant Stephen Quinn from Fife’s road policing unit said: “Sadly, as a result of the collision, a man has lost his life and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.

“The driver of the Ford Escort sustained serious injuries that he continues to recover from and we are grateful to those who stopped to assist at the scene of the collision and who have provided information to help with our inquiries so far.

“I’d ask anyone who has relevant dashcam footage or information and who hasn’t yet provided this to officers to contact us as soon as possible.”
