Two teenagers have been taken to hospital with serious injuries following a car crash on a major road in Fife.

The two-vehicle collision involved a grey Peugeot 207 and a white VW Polo near the Forgan roundabout on the A914.

The incident happened just before 7pm on Friday.

Emergency services rushed to the scene shortly after and a 14-year-old boy, who was a passenger in the Peugeot, sustained “critical injuries” and was taken to Ninewells Hospital.

The driver, an 18-year-old man, was also taken to the same hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the Polo, a 35-year-old man, was checked by the Scottish Ambulance Service and did not require hospital treatment.

The road was closed for crash investigation work and re-opened around 2am on Saturday.

Sergeant Paul Ewing said: “Our enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of the crash and we are appealing for witnesses.

“If you were in the area around the time and saw what happened then please get in touch as your information could be important.

“Likewise, if you were driving and have dash-cam footage that could assist with our investigation please make contact with us as soon as possible.”

Anyone who can help is asked to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 3450 of Friday, August 18.
