Driver hurt in Crail Thrash track crash

A man had to be airlifted to hospital with serious injuries after his car came off a race track in Fife.

He and other members of the public were allowed onto the track at Crail airfield after an organised motor event known as the Crail Thrash on Sunday.

Fife Constabulary said no other vehicle was involved in the incident.

The 46-year-old man suffered serious head injuries and was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee by air ambulance.

Police appealed for information about the incident, which happened at about 15:55.

A Fife Constabulary spokesman said: "We are keen to speak to any person who would have been at this event and may have seen the accident occurring.

"We are also keen to speak to those who may have been driving on the track prior to the accident."

Members of the public are allowed onto the track after the Thrash speed trial event if their vehicles are suitably adapted.
