Motorists were lucky to escape unscathed as a telegraph pole was brought down in the latest crash on Fife’s Standing Stane road.
Cabling and the post fell across the A915 in the accident near Kirkcaldy on Saturday evening.
No one was hurt in the incident, which occurred near Wellsgreen Golf Range shortly after 7pm, but those caught up in the drama were shaken.
Police and paramedics were called to the scene of the accident, which involved two cars.
The 60mph road, which has long straights, has been the scene of numerous accidents over the years, including two fatal crashes in November and December which claimed the lives of three young people.
A petition was recently launched calling for the speed limit to be reduced to 40mph and for it to be upgraded to a dual carriageway.
A Police Scotland spokesman gave assurance that there had been no live wiring across the road during the incident.
He said BT had been alerted straight away and the firm sent out engineers to deal with the damage and restore the line.
The road was closed while emergency services dealt with the aftermath of the crash, and traffic including service buses were diverted.
More than 2,000 people have signed a petition urging Fife Council to reduce the speed limit on the road between Kirkcaldy and Levenmouth and for its to be made into a dual carriageway in the longer-term.
John O’Brien, SNP councillor for Buckhaven, Methil and Wemyss villages, has spoken out about the dangers of the road.
He also previously pledged a report into safety measures along the route would be brought to Fife Council’s Levenmouth area committee early this year.
