A bus collided with a car on Kirkcaldy’s Hayfield Road shortly before 3pm today (Friday).

The crash happened just before pupils from the nearby Pathhead Primary School were due to come out at the end of the school day.

Police say that three of the bus passengers have been treated for minor injuries, but it is not yet known if they were taken to the nearby Victoria Hospital or treated at the scene.

The single decker Stagecoach bus, a 39a heading for Glenrothes, was in a collision with a green Ford Fiesta which is believed to have had at least one person in it.

An eye witness to the crash said that she had just come off the bus when she saw it collide with the car and one female who was waiting to get off at the next stop was seen lying on the floor of the vehicle, while the car ended up being pushed against a wall.
