Man and woman injured after concrete slab thrown from flyover hits taxi

Police seek witnesses after pair injured by object launched from pedestrian walkway above Fife road

A man and woman have been taken to hospital after a concrete slab was launched at a taxi from a pedestrian flyover in Scotland.

The incident took place on the B921 as the taxi headed towards Kinglassie in Fife at about 12.30am on Sunday. The man and woman, both 37, were taken to Glenrothes hospital for treatment.

Glenrothes police have appealed for witnesses.

The attack follows two similar incidents at the same pedestrian flyover in which two vehicles were hit by wheelie bins from above.

The first incident took place on 16 July at about 1am and the second took place just before 4am on 19 July.

No one was injured in those incidents but both cars were damaged.

Insp Kirk Donnelly of Police Scotland said: “Two people have suffered injuries as a result of these reckless actions and there could easily have been far more serious consequences.

“I would therefore appeal to anyone who witnessed any of the incidents or has any information that might assist with our inquiries to contact us on 101, quoting reference 0108 of 6 August, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
