Police have confirmed they are trying to trace two men who are believed to have been in a car at the time of a crash on the M90 in Fife which caused the death of a front seat passenger.
Speculation has surrounded the incident on the M90 which took place between junctions four and five at around 11.05pm on Sunday and involved a Renault Grand Scenic which struck the central reservation.
Police revealed that the front seat passenger, a man, died at Dundee’s Ninewells Hospital after the accident, but have made no comment on the driver or any other occupants up until now.
A Police Scotland spokesman has confirmed that an investigation is under way to find two other men who they think were in the vehicle at the time of the crash and may have fled the scene.
“There are concerns for their welfare and we’d urge anyone who was on the M90 at this time and saw two pedestrians, or anyone with dashcam footage who was travelling in the area, to get in touch,” police said in a statement.
“In particular, we’d also ask those living and working in the surrounding areas to come forward with any information which may be relevant and check their outbuildings.”
Enquiries to formally identify the man who died and establish the full circumstances of this crash are ongoing, police added.
The collision, which took place north of the junction with Kelty, involved the Scenic and a Seat Leon, which subsequently struck the Renault as it was travelling northbound.
The road was closed for around seven hours as crash investigation work continued.
Inspector Greg Burns, of Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit, said: “We are carrying out inquiries to establish the full circumstances of this collision and would urge anyone who can help to contact police.
“We would be interested in speaking to anyone who may have seen these vehicles on the road before the collision or who may have passed the scene immediately following the incident.
“Anyone who was on the M90 and using a dashcam is asked to review their footage and let us know if you may have anything which could assist our investigation.
“Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting 3379 of 5 January, 2020.”
