MESSAGES of support have flooded in for a Dunfermline teenager who suffered serious head injuries in a car crash.

Tayler Martin, 18, is recovering in hospital after a collision with another car on the A985 at the junction with Clinkum Bank two weeks ago.

He was able to post on Facebook for the first time on Wednesday morning, thanking friends and family for their love and support.

He said: "I'll keep the thank yous brief for now but they are far more superior than anyone could ever explain for. I didn't know I was involved in so many people's lives, it has given me an added bonus to get myself back to full fitness.

"The support from everyone since the accident has truly been incredible. Once I'm home I'll get round to seeing all the messages that people have left and I can assure you that they are not going unnoticed, they are being read to me on a regular basis and keeping my hopes high. I am continuing to improve and hoping to begin rehab in the next coming days."

Dunfermline Athletic striker Lewis McCann and ex-player and manager John Potter have both sent videos wishing him well.

Sunderland FC first team coach Potter has invited Tayler and his family to a match once he's feeling better.

He said: "I know you'll be desperate to get back to full fitness and feeling better. When you do that, make sure you get in touch with me and give me a call.

"I'll bring you and your family for a day out at Sunderland and make sure you're looked after and hopefully have a nice day.

"Hopefully you're feeling better soon and I wish you all the best."

Tayler's parents posted on Facebook on Monday that he had been moved to his own room within the HDU Neuro Ward at Western General Hospital in Edinburgh to help with his recovery.

He had been in a critical but stable condition following the incident and was in the intensive care unit before being moved to the ward.

He was the passenger in a Ford Ka which was involved in a collision with a Ford Fiesta at around 9.30pm on Friday, September 13.

Police Scotland have appealed for information and witnesses who may have seen or recorded the crash with dash cam footage to come forward to aid their investigation.

Sergeant Stephen Quinn, from Fife's road policing unit, said: "I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or captured it with dash cam footage to come forward. Anyone who can help is ask to call Police Scotland quoting Incident 4269 of Friday, September 13 2019."
