Police Scotland can confirm a 66-year-old man has passed away following a two-vehicle road traffic collision in Fife yesterday morning (Thursday).
Emergency services responded to the A985 west of the Limekilns junction at around 11.40 a.m.
A white Citroen van and red motorcycle were involved in the incident and the road was closed at McKane Park, Dunfermline, for several hours while collision investigations took place.
The deceased male had been the driver of the motorcycle and had been carrying a female passenger who was also injured.
She was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary where she remains in a serious condition.
The road reopened to traffic shortly after 4.00 p.m. and officers are keen to speak to anyone who saw a white Citroen van or a red motorcycle in the area that morning.
Those with any information are asked to contact police on 101.
