22/08/11: A car driver has been left fighting for his survival after a car accident in Crail Thrash.

Spectators at a motor-sporting gathering in Fife are truly shocked after witnessing an extraordinary car crash that almost claimed the life of a 46 year old man, who is now fighting for survival.

At 3:55 pm on Sunday, the accident occurred at the Crail Thrash near to the Crail airfield, after the driver seemingly lost ability to keep control of his car causing him to veer off of the road.

The driver was the sole victim of the crash which involved only his vehicle – a silver Renault Clio which overturned before coming to rest. Witnesses were on hand to contact the emergency services.

It was clear to paramedics on the scene that the crash was severe, and a Glasgow air ambulance lifted the victim to safety in Ninewells Hospital, Dundee. It was said that he was in a critical condition having entered the hospital on Sunday evening.

The Crail Thrash takes place regularly through the year attracts a large number of tourists and car enthusiasts from throughout the UK. The accident occurred shortly before the event’s close during the period when the general public with specialist vehicles have access to the track. The track is a drag strip of roughly quarter a mile and accidents to date have been rare.

Anyone who was witness to the event has been implored by police to get in contact with them, as soon as possible. Fife Constabulary is dealing with the incident and they can be contacted on 0845 600 5702. Inspector Scott Stevenson said they were keen to speak to anyone who had witnessed the crash or who had been driving on the drag track prior to the incident.
