Two people were injured in two separate crashes which happened on a Fife road within a minute of each other.

A 65-year-old man was taken to hospital after crashing into a pole on the A915 Standing Stane Road between Boreland and Windygates at 13:26 on Tuesday.

The second incident happened at 13:27 just feet from the first crash.

A male passenger of a Ford Focus was taken to hospital after colliding with a white Scudo van that had swerved to avoid an Audi A3 which was overtaking.

A 74-year-old woman driving the Ford Focus and a 41-year-old woman driving the van were unhurt.

No-one was injured in the black Audi A3.

The others were taken to Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy.

Police closed the road for several hours.
