Woman and three-year-old girl in hospital after car hits tree

The woman, 27, is in a critical condition after the crash in Fife.

A woman and a three-year-old girl have been taken to hospital after a car crashed into a tree in Fife.

The pair were passengers in a silver Volkswagen Bora when the collision happened in Methill’s South Street on Sunday night.

The incident took place around 7.25pm, between the roundabout junction with the A955 and Dubbieside.

The woman, 27, suffered a serious injury and was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, where she remains in a critical condition.

Meanwhile, the child, who sustained a minor injury, was taken to Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy for observation.

The driver, a 33-year-old man, also experienced a minor injury but did not require any medical attention.

The road was closed for around seven hours as an investigation was conducted at the scene and the vehicle uplifted.

Police have appealed for any witnesses of the crash to come forward.

Sergeant Ewan Pearce said: “This was a serious crash and our thoughts are with the family and friends of the woman who has suffered serious injury as a result, along with all those involved.

“Our enquiries into the cause of the crash are continuing and I would ask anyone who saw what happened, and has not yet spoken to officers, to come forward.

“I would also ask motorists who were in the area around the time of the collision who may have been recording via dash-cam devices to check their systems and provide any relevant footage to us as soon as possible.”

If you have any information on the incident contact police on 101.
