Police have confirmed that one person has died after a road accident on the A92 in Fife.
A 63-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene after a collision involving one vehicle on the westbound carriageway of the main road through the region on Saturday night.
Ambulance crews also took a 12-year-old boy and a baby to hospital for what were described as minor injuries.
The accident happened at around 10pm near the Lochgelly junction.
Westbound lanes of the A92 between Lochgelly and Cowdenbeath remained closed overnight as emergency services and an accident investigation team worked at the scene.
The road did not reopen until 15 hours after the incident.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 9.55pm on Saturday, September 12, officers in Fife received reports of a one vehicle crash on the A92 near the Cowdenbeath junction.
“Emergency services attended and a 63-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.
“Two boys, a 12-year-old and a one year old baby, were taken to Victoria Hospital for treatment for minor injury and kept overnight for observation.
“Inquiries into the incident are ongoing.”
Witnesses reported seeing numerous police, fire and ambulance crews rush to the scene on Saturday night.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said it sent three appliances to the incident and crews were involved in making the scene safe.

During the carriageway closure there was heavy traffic on the surrounding road network as motorists were diverted along the B9149 to Lochgelly.
Traffic Scotland confirmed the road had reopened at around 1.20pm on Sunday.
The tragedy follows the death of a man in his twenties on the notorious Fife road, between the Bankhead and Redhouse roundabouts, last month.
Over the years, the A92 has claimed numerous lives, with the stretch north of Glenrothes regarded as the most dangerous section of the route.
