Police Scotland have confirmed the identity of a girl who died as a result of a road traffic crash in Townhill yesterday (Monday). 

She was three-year-old Robyn Knox from Cardenden.

The incident happened beside a local shop around 10.10am on August 3 on Main Street, Townhill, when a blue Nissan Mirca collided with the girl. 

Emergency services attended the scene and the girl was taken to the Victoria Hospital but she died a short time later.

A witness told the Press that the three-year-old was with her auntie at the time when she ran out in front of a car and a nurse who was passing tried to do CPR before the little girl was rushed to Kirkcaldy. 

Sergeant Stephen Quinn, of Road Policing East, said: “Our thoughts remain with the family of Robyn at this extremely difficult time. 

“I wish to send my thanks to the emergency service crews and members of the public who assisted at the scene. 

“I would also like to reiterate my request that the privacy of the family is respected during this time.”
