A MAN who died after a crash involving an Audi car in Cowdenbeath has been named.

Stephen Davis, 46, passed away after the crash on High Street on Thursday evening.

His family have released a statement following his passing through Police Scotland.

Dunfermline Press:

It stated: "We are devastated by the loss of Stephen and the circumstances and timing that led to his death while he was still grieving the loss of his long term partner who passed away in July.

"We are still unable to comprehend the nature of his passing. 

"Stephen was a loving son, brother, uncle and friend. Stephen and his partner also worked together to make Cowdenbeath Market Garden a real community project. He will be deeply missed by us all. 

"We would like to thank the bystanders who tried to help Stephen at the scene, all the witnesses who came forward with information and also Police Scotland.

"We'd like to request that our privacy be respected whilst we grieve for Stephen."

The vehicle involved remains outstanding and enquiries are ongoing to trace it.
