The sister of a woman who died in a road crash has paid tribute to the “bubbly and popular” auxiliary nurse.

Amy Johnstone, 24, of Kennoway, Fife, was the passenger in a car which collided with a concrete pumping lorry on the A916 near Craigrothie on Wednesday morning.

She was travelling to work at St Andrews Hospital when the crash happened just after 11am.

Fife Police said that weather conditions in the area had been very poor.

Ms Johnstone’s sister Stephanie said: “Amy was a bubbly, popular young girl, a caring daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, sister-in-law and fiancee who will be dearly missed by all who knew her.”

The man driving the car was injured in the crash. The lorry driver is believed to have been uninjured.

The road was closed for several hours after the crash while officers from Fife Constabulary’s Road Policing Unit carried out accident investigations.

Inspector Brenda Sinclair said: “We are very keen to hear from anyone who saw the collision or was driving in the area around 11am, particularly the driver of a dark-coloured Land Rover which was seen in the area at the time.”
