An elderly woman seriously injured on board a bus heading through Freuchie this week has sadly died, police have confirmed.
Emergency services were called to the incident at around noon on Monday April 8, when a number 64 Moffat and Williamson bus was travelling east through the village.
The 82-year-old woman, who was a passenger on the St Andrews to Glenrothes bus at the time, sustained a serious head injury as the vehicle braked to avoid a collision.
She was rushed to the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy.
But tragically, she passed away in hospital during the evening of Thursday April 11.
Sergeant Nicola Young from Fife’s road policing unit said: “This has been a tragic incident which has resulted in the loss of this woman’s life.
“Our thoughts and sympathies remain with her family and friends at this time.”
As police inquiries continue, the sergeant thanked the passengers on the bus who have come forward and assisted officers with the investigation.
The police had earlier appealed for seven passengers to contact officers.
She added: “I’d urge anyone who witnessed what happened, or who has any information that can help our investigation, to come forward and contact officers at their earliest opportunity.”
Those with information can contact Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 1356 of 8 April.
