A92 crash: Seven drivers 'disappointingly' caught filming crash scene as two people taken to hospital

Police officers in Fife have shared their disappointment at catching seven drivers filming the scene of a crash on the A92 as they drove by on Wednesday.

The crash happened at around 7.10am on December 8 and involved a Honda Civic, Ford Focus and a Volvo lorry.

The 68-year-old driver of the Honda and her 61-year-old male passenger were taken to the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy where staff have described their conditions as stable.

The other people involved were uninjured.

When emergency services attended they were shocked to spot seven nearby drivers filming the accident, while the two casualties were in view.

One driver "even had no hands on the wheel” and was issued a conditional offer for six points on his licence, along with a £200 fine.

Officers said that they have the details of the other six culprits who should expect a “letter and/or a knock on their door” as their actions were “simply not acceptable.”

They added that using mobile phones while driving in that situation was not only dangerous and illegal, but inconsiderate for the people involved in the accident.
