POLICE are asking for help in tracing two people believed to have been involved in a fatal crash on the M90, near Kelty, on Sunday evening.

A man died following the incident involving a Renault Grand Scenic on the northbound carriageway between junctions four and five at around 11.05pm.

Police Scotland said enquiries are continuing to formally identify the man who died and establish the full circumstances of this crash. An investigation is also underway to trace two other men, who are believed to have been in the car at the time.

A post on Fife Police's Facebook page stated: "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.

"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."

As reported previously, the silver Renault Grand Scenic struck the central reservation of the road. A Seat Leon car, also travelling northbound, subsequently was involved in a collision with the Renault.

The man who died was a front-seat passenger in the Renault. He was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee for treatment but he died as a result of his injuries.

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."
