The heartbroken mum of a three-year-old girl who died after being hit by a car has paid tribute to her “beautiful baby girl” who was due to become a big sister.
Little Robyn Knox was left seriously injured after being hit by the Nissan Micra in Townhill, near Dunfermline, on Monday morning.
Horrified passersby helped performed first aid on the stricken youngster before she was rushed to the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy by ambulance.
Despite the best efforts of medics, she died a short time later.
No one else was injured during the collision.
Her brave mum, Danielle Falconer, paid tribute to the adorable youngster who she said was “the best thing to ever happen” to her and dad Barry Knox.
She wrote on social media: “We are absolutely shattered into million pieces and there are absolutely no words to describe how we feel at this moment in time.
“Robyn was the best thing to ever happen to us. We were blessed with the most beautiful baby girl and we will forever remember her that way.
“She is the most loving, kind, gentle and caring wee soul with the biggest heart.
“She was super excited to be a big sister at the end of this year and we will make sure her baby twins know about her and speak about her everyday.
“Her sassy attitude made her into the little diva she is and I’m sure each of you will have a lovely story to tell of her.
“We can’t thank you enough for all your thoughts and kind words, we will get back to each and everyone of you who have went out of your way to message us, just when we feel up to it.
“Please feel free to share your stories of Robyn with us to help us keep her memory alive forever. It is definitely helping us that little bit.
“We love you unreal amounts baby girl. We hope you keep dancing up there and giving everyone attitude like you did us.
“This is not goodbye, it’s see you soon baby. Mummy and daddy love you till the end of the earth and more.”
Sergeant Stephen Quinn, of Road Policing East, said: “Our enquiries continue into the exact circumstances surrounding the crash and we would ask that if anyone has any information that they contact officers.
“I would also ask that if anyone has any possible dashcam or CCTV footage of the area to get in touch with police.”
One local resident who witnessed the moments immediately after the crash told how the little girl was thought to have run out from the Day-Today shop and into the road.
They added that several near misses had been reported on the road which is often lined with parked cars.
They said: “I arrived soon after it happened and saw a lassie giving mouth to mouth to the wee one.
“They said the little girl ran out of the shop when another customer came in and opened the door. It all happened so quickly, I don’t think anyone could have done anything about it.
“It looked like the driver of the Micra was a young lassie who maybe had her mother in the car with her. I don’t know how she’ll ever be able to drive again after what happened.
“I don’t know about this accident but there have been lots of close calls on that crossing. “There’s a bad blind corner and there have been lots of near misses. A wee while after the police left this afternoon a young lad was nearly hit.”
