Seriously injured St Monans cyclist found on the A917 has died

A cyclist who was found with significant head injuries on the A917 between between Elie and St Monan’s at around 7.45pm on Monday 8th July has passed away at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee. Police have identified the 43-year-old man as Scott Walker from St Monans.

Detective Chief Inspector John Anderson from Fife CID said: “Our condolences and sympathies are with the family of Scott Walker and we are continuing to provide them with all the relevant support they require, while also conducting a thorough investigation to establish exactly how Scott came by his injuries.

“Our inquiries at the scene have indicated that at some point a Vauxhall Astra, we believe to be silver or partly silver in colour, has been involved in a collision. This could either be a hatchback or estate motor car or an Astra van. However, we do not know at this time if this is linked to the injuries Scott sustained, or if it this is a separate incident.

“We know from our initial CCTV enquires that a number of vehicles were on the road travelling in both directions between St.Monans and Elie between 7.30 and 7.45 on Monday night. We are actively working to identify these vehicles and therefore ask any motorists or members of the public who were on or around the A917 on Monday evening to get in touch with us as soon as possible.

“We would also be very keen to speak to anyone who believes they may have any dash-cam footage of this area from Monday evening.”‎

“Finally, I would appeal directly to the driver of any vehicle involved in this incident to come forward so that they can provide an explanation to us about what happened”
