POLICE have traced one of two men who they were searching for after a fatal car crash on the M90 on Sunday evening.

An appeal to find the pair was made yesterday and members of the public were asked to check their outbuildings.

A post on Fife Police Division's Facebook page has confirmed that one of the missing occupants had now been found safe and well.

"He is now assisting officers with their enquiries into the circumstances of the crash," it stated. "One other person who is thought to have been in the car at the time has still to be traced, and we would still be interested to hear from anyone who was driving on the M90 in that area around that time, and in particular from anyone with dashcam footage.

"Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 3379 of 5 January."

A man died in Sunday's crash, which took place just after 11pm, after a silver Renault struck the central reservation of the road. It was subsequently struck by a Seat Leon car which was also travelling northbound.

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

The road reopened fully around 6.30am after an investigation was carried out at the scene.

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."
