A man has died days after being involved in a car crash which left him needing treatment in hospital.
The 69-year-old sustained minor injuries in the crash on the A912, south of the junction leading to the disused Balcanquhal Quarry in Perthshire, at 7.40am on Sunday.
He was the passenger in a Toyota Yaris and was taken to Perth Royal Infirmary by the Scottish Ambulance Service for treatment with the 71-year-old female driver.
They were later released but police say the man died in the early hours of Thursday morning at an address in Glenrothes.
An investigation has been launched and officers are appealing for witnesses to Sunday’s crash.
Sergeant Ewan Pearce, of Fife Division’s Road Policing Unit, said: “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the gentleman’s family at this time.
“We are now investigating this collision and I would ask anyone who was on A912, near to the disused Balcanquhal Quarry, on Sunday, February 10, and has any information that can assist our inquiries, to please get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
The 35-year-old male driver of the silver Mercedes Sprinter that was also involved in the incident was uninjured.
