TRIBUTES have been paid to a young Kirkcaldy man killed in a weekend car crash in Lochgelly.

Jamie Ewens (19) was driving his Citreon Saxo along Station Road in the town when it struck a railway bridge at around 9.45 a.m. on Saturday morning.

A passenger was also injured in the incident which saw the road closed for the rest of the day.

In a statement, Jamie’s parents Sonia and Sandy said: “Jamie was a loving son and big brother to Jack.

“He loved to go fishing with his granddad and his uncle Mark.

“We can’t believe he has been taken away from us so suddenly.

“We will all miss him greatly.”

Station Road remained closed until around 5 p.m. on Saturday while investigators examined the scene.

And because the access road to Lochgelly railway station was blocked as a result, passengers travelling to the town by rail were asked to disembark at Cowdenbeath and speak to station staff to arrange alternative transport for the remainder of their journey.

Police are appealing for witnesses and asking anyone who was in the area around the time of the accident to contact them on 0845 600 5702.
