Young father killed in Hogmanay crash will be laid to rest this week
The funeral of a young father killed in a car accident on a notorious Fife road is to be held on Friday.
Ryan Dorrill died following a one vehicle accident on the A915 Standing Stane Road on December 31.
The 25-year-old from Kirkcaldy was travelling in a silver Vauxhall Astra which left the road and collided with a tree at around 10am.
Emergency services were sent to the scene near the Checkbar junction but the father-of-two could not be saved.
He leaves behind his partner Amy, parents Susan and Graeme as well as young children.
A service will be held at Crosbie Matthew Funeral Home on Nicol Street before a burial at Hayfield Cemetery.
Following his death, Police Scotland issued an appeal for witnesses to come forward, particularly anyone who saw Mr Dorrill on the Sunday evening.
Sergeant Stephen Quinn said: “Tragically, this collision resulted in the death of a young man and our thoughts are with Ryan’s family.
“We will continue to offer any support we can and at the request of the family, we are asking that their privacy be respected at this very difficult time.
“As part of our inquiries we are keen to speak to anyone who may have been in contact with Ryan during the evening of Sunday December 30 leading into the morning of the 31st.
“Likewise, we’d urge anyone who may have seen a silver Vauxhall Astra in the area of the Standing Stane Road during those hours to also contact police immediately.”
