POLICE have confirmed they have traced the two men they were searching for after a fatal crash on the M90 on Sunday evening.

An appeal had been launched on Monday to find the pair and members of the public were asked to check their outbuildings. The first was found safe and well yesterday (Wednesday) with the second being traced today.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "We can confirm that both men who were being treated as missing persons following the fatal crash on the M90 near Kelty shortly after 11pm on Sunday night (5th) have now been identified and traced.

"Thanks to everyone who shared our appeals or contacted us with information.

"Enquiries continue to formally identify the man who sadly died in the incident, along with the continuing investigation into the crash itself. If you have any information that could help us, please call us on 101, our reference is incident 3379 of 5th January."

The man who died in the crash was a front seat passenger in a silver Renault which was travelling northbound when it stuck the central reservation of the M90. It was subsequently struck by a Seat Leon car which was also travelling northbound.

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."
