A cyclist is understood to be fighting for their life after being hit by a car in Kirkcaldy early on Tuesday morning.
The accident happened in the town’s Carberry Road at around 6.53am and the road was immediately blocked off by police.
The man on the bike, who has not yet been identified by police, was rushed to Kirkcaldy’s Victoria Hospital suffering from what are believed to be life threatening injuries.
Doctors there said he was in a “critical” but “stable” condition.
The driver of the car involved, which was a red Vauxhall Corsa, was unhurt but is said to have been shaken up by the incident.
The road was blocked off just north of the junction with Carberry Place, meaning access to the nearby Asda supermarket was unaffected.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Police in Kirkcaldy attended a road traffic collision on Carberry Road today, Tuesday November 1, between a red Vauxhall Corsa and a cyclist.
“The incident happened around 6.50 am
“The cyclist sustained serious injuries and was taken to the Victoria Hospital for treatment where he is currently in a stable condition.
“Anyone who saw the collision or who has information that can assist officers with their inquiries and who has not yet spoken to officers is asked to call 101.”
