A man is fighting for his life in hospital after being struck by a van in Fife.

The 43-year-old victim suffered serious head injuries after being hit by the white Ford Transit and remains in a critical condition at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh.

The incident happened outside a Tesco Express supermarket in Cardenden’s Station Road at around 8.10pm on Thursday.

Police recovered the panel van a short time later a few miles away in Blyth Gardens, Kirkcaldy.

A 41-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the collision as part of the ongoing investigation.

Police are appealing for witnesses to get in touch.

Sergeant Nicola Young said: “We are working to establish the full circumstances of this crash and would urge anyone who may have seen a white van just before the collision or afterwards to get in touch.

“If you have dashcam footage which could help with our enquiries then please contact Police Scotland on 101.”
