One dead and six hurt after Fife road crash

One woman has died and another woman and five young children have been injured in a two-vehicle collision in Fife, just south of the Tay Bridge.

Two children were seriously hurt and three others injured after the estate car in which they were travelling collided with a car on the A92.

All five were taken to hospital in Dundee, with the estate car's driver.

Emergency crews worked for almost two hours to cut free the other female driver. She was later pronounced dead.

The accident happened at about 1300 BST between the Five Roads roundabout and Forgan roundabout, near Cupar.

The children involved were all said to be under 10 years old.

A Scottish Ambulance spokesman said: "It was a very traumatic scene, but the emergency services had it under control.

"Two of the children have suffered quite severe injuries, and the female driving the people-carrier and the three other children have managed to walk away with minor injuries."

The road was due to be closed for several hours.
