Police say the driver of a vehicle involved in an alleged hit-and-run crash in Kirkcaldy has been traced.

The incident occurred on Salisbury Street around 5pm on Monday, June 13.

Officers had initially appealed for information to find the driver of a “large black car” involved in the incident.

But in an update on Wednesday, a police spokesperson confirmed a 38-year-old man thought to be the driver had now been found.

They said: “The black car involved has now been traced and a 38-year-old man is subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal in connection with road traffic offences.”

A 53-year-old pedestrian was taken to Victoria Hospital were he remains for treatment of what police describe as serious injuries.

Police say they are still looking to speak with any witnesses who saw the collision as they urge anyone who was in the area at the time and has information to come forward.

They are particularly keen to speak with motorists who were in the area at the time with dashcam footage.

Sergeant Lee Walkingshaw, of Fife Road Policing Unit, said: “I would also urge anyone with dashcam footage that could assist our investigation to contact police.

“Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 2672 of 13 June.”
