Tributes have been paid to a 49-year-old cyclist who has died from his injuries sustained in a collision on the A92 near Freuchie last weekend.

David Christie (49) passed away at Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy, yesterday (Thursday) afternoon.

He had been struck by a silver Vauxhall Corsa just after 5am last Saturday morning.

The female driver of the car was not injured.

Through Police Scotland, Mr Christie’s family said: “David was a much loved son and father. He will be hugely missed by family and friends. David’s family want to thank the staff in the Intensive Care Unit for being so kind and caring while looking after him. The family is finding it extremely difficult to come to terms with this tragic loss”.

The accident happened just days after another fatal crash on the notorious stretch of road.

Katherine Armit (73), from Ladybank, died from her injuries after the car in which she was a passenger was in collision with a tractor.

The tragedies are the latest in a long catalogue of accidents that have prompted campaigners to call for urgent action to improve safety measures on the A92.
