Two men have died in separate hit-and-run incidents this weekend.
Ian Brown was found dead on the Dailly to Girvan road in Ayrshire at about 3.05am yesterday.
A second man, in his 30s, died in hospital after suffering head and internal injuries when he was struck by a car in a bus lane in Ocean Drive, Leith, Edinburgh, just before 2am this morning.
Mr Brown, 48, was walking home to Dailly after a night with friends at Girvan bowling club when he was hit by a vehicle, Strathclyde Police said.
Sergeant Jackie Dunbar said: "He left a local kebab shop at around midnight to begin his walk home. I'm keen to find out exactly what happened over the next three hours.
"I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time to contact police."
Mr Brown's relatives have been told of his death and a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
Meanwhile, Lothian and Borders Police want to find a silver Vauxhall Astra which was seen in the area of the second incident, in Leith, this morning.
Officers believe the dead man, who has not been identified, had been lying in the bus lane when he was run over by a car.
A spokesman for the force said: "This has been a horrific accident which has resulted in the death of a man. The driver fled the scene despite the car suffering damage to its underside and leaking engine coolant.
"We are keen to trace the driver and the vehicle involved. It is clear that the car was badly damaged and that damage will be obvious to anyone who uses it."
A trail of engine coolant led from the scene to the corner of Ocean Drive and Commercial Street, where a passing driver saw a car stopped with its bonnet raised, the spokesman said.
The police spokesman added: "We are appealing for anyone who recognises this car to come forward. "In particular, we would like to hear from any service stations or other outlets who may have sold water or engine coolant to the driver of a silver hatchback in the early hours of this morning."
