A police investigation is underway after a 21-year-old motorcyclist was involved in a collision with a Volkswagen Golf on the B1348 Links Road near to Seton Sands Holiday Camp about 14:20 on Saturday afternoon.
The man was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary by ambulance but died before arriving at the hospital.
The road was closed for several hours for investigation work to take place and officers have appealed for dashcam footage.
Sgt Fraser Wood said: “Sadly this collision has resulted in the death of the young motorcycle rider and our thoughts and sympathies are with his family at this time. “We are still working to establish the full circumstances of this tragic incident and other motorists who were on the road and witnessed what happened are urged to contact police immediately.”
He also appealed for anyone with dashcam footage of the incident to get in touch
