Seven drivers caught using phones to film scene of horror crash on busy Scots road


Seven drivers were caught using their phones to film the scene of a horror car crash this morning after a vehicle flipped onto its roof.

Emergency services raced to a three-vehicle collision on the A92, near to the Cowdenbeath Interchange, around 7.10am on Wednesday.

The 68-year-old driver of the Honda and her 61-year-old male passenger were both taken by ambulance to the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy where their condition is described as stable.

The 46-year-old driver of the Volvo lorry and the 36-year-old driver of the Ford Focus were uninjured.

Police are currently appealing for information on the collision as officers have hit out at “disappointing” behaviour on the road following the smash.

Seven drivers were caught filming the scene while the injured driver and passenger were present.

One van driver even had no hands on the wheel as he was issued with a conditional offer for six points on his licence and a £200 fine.

Officers have warned the other six drivers to expect a letter or knock on their door in the coming days.

Sergeant Michelle Burns from the Road Policing Unit at Glenrothes said: “Our enquiries are continuing to establish the cause of this road crash.

“The road was busy at the time and I would appeal to any witnesses who have not yet spoken to officers to contact us.

“I would also ask anyone with dash-cam footage to come forward.

“Anyone with information should contact us through 101 with reference 0408 of 8 December.”
