A cyclist has died following a head on collision with a van on a country road in Fife.
The accident happened on the B937 road close to Giffordtown at around noon on Sunday August 25.
Police and ambulance services, including an air ambulance crew, were called to the scene and the road was closed as paramedics attended to those involved.
Officers have also opened an investigation into how the tragedy occurred.
One onlooker who asked not to be named said: “Everyone was very shaken up.
“The air ambulance was parked in a potato field by the side of the road.
“The police had cordoned off the road, but you could see where the accident had happened further up, beyond the junction.
“There was what looked like someone on the road under a blanket. It was really grim.
“It had been such a lovely day with the weather and lots of cyclists out on the roads.”
A spokesman for Police Scotland said: “Officers were alerted to a road traffic collision at 12.10pm on Sunday, August 25 close to Giffordtown village where a male cyclist had been involved in an accident with a motorist.
“The road was closed and local diversions were put in place as emergency services continued at the scene.
“Anyone who witnessed the incident or motorists with dash cam footage is urged to contact Police Scotland by calling 101 and quoting incident number 2017 of August 25.”
The tragedy is the second involving a cyclist on Fife roads in recent weeks.
Only last month a man was found seriously injured on the A917 between Elie and St Monans.
He was taken to Ninewells Hospital but died soon after.
A 74-year-old man was subsequently charged in relation to the incident.
With the growth in popularity of cycling , Fife has become something of a haven for cycle clubs and enthusiasts during the summer months with hundreds of riders taking to the region’s roads each weekend.
Campaigners have been calling for the creation of a Tay Estuary cycle loop to provide safe routes for riders, and to ease congestion and pollution on the roads.
