The mother of a nine-year-old youngster tragically killed in an incident on the A92 on Tuesday evening has paid tribute to her son.

Police have formally identified the crash victim as Logan Carrie from Cadham in Glenrothes, who was struck by a black Vauxhall Corsa on the A92 between Cadham and Balfarg at around 5.20 p.m. on Tuesday, February 10, after visiting a friend’s home.

In a statement released through Police Scotland, Logan’s mother Sionaid Brown said: “The whole family is devastated by the loss of Logan.

“He was so cheeky, he loved playing tricks on people but was a very sensitive soul, he didn’t like seeing people hurt or sad and he loved giving to charity as well.”

The youngster’s mum added that Logan had a close relationship with his twin brother Zachary as well.

“The bond between them was incredible, they’ve never been apart,” she said.

“He will also be greatly missed by his grandfather and other siblings.”

Floral tributes have been placed at the crash scene as police continue to appeal for anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward with information.

Logan’s death has sparked a renewed urgency in efforts to tackle safety issues associated with the notorious mile and a half stretch of the Transport Scotland controlled trunk road, which has seen a number of fatalities in recent years.

Transport Scotland has confirmed it will be looking into the circumstances surrounding Tuesday’s tragedy.

In a sad coincidence, members of Glenrothes Area Futures Group at the annual meeting were discussing stepping up their campaign to see improvements made to the A92 as emergency services were dealing with this latest incident.

Dr Bob Grant, chairman of the lobby group told those attending: “We can’t sit here any longer doing nothing, We must act now and make it our priority to bring about real and much needed improvements to this stretch of the A92.”
