A MAN and woman were taken to hospital after a serious crash on the A909 Kelty to Cowdenbeath road on Friday. Police have now issued an appeal for witnesses to the incident involving a blue Ford Mondeo and a black motorbike which took place just before midday.

Emergency services raced to the scene near the junction with Gray Park, Cowdenbeath, and the driver and passenger of the bike, a 66-year-old man and a 64-year-old woman, were taken to the Victoria Hospital.

The road was closed until 5.45pm to allow officers to carry out an investigation.

Road Policing Sergeant Stephen Quinn said: "Our enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of the crash. I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the crash but has not yet spoken to police to come forward.

"I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have a dash-cam and saw either of the vehicles prior to the crash. Please check back and see if there is any footage which could help with our enquiries."
