A man remains in hospital with serious injuries following a hit and run incident in Fife.

The 53-year-old was left injured on Salisbury Street in Kirkcaldy by a “large black car” after it struck him and then failed to stop or return to the scene.

Concerned onlookers called for emergency crews following the incident shortly after 5pm on Monday, June 13.

He was rushed to Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy for treatment, where officers say he remains for medical care on injuries described as serious.

Police Scotland have now launched appeal to trace the vehicle and driver responsible.

Officers say they are desperate to hear from anyone with a dashboard mounted camera who may have captured footage of the incident.

Sergeant Lee Walkingshaw, of the Fife Road Policing Unit, said: “We are asking for anyone who was in the area around the time of the crash, or anyone with information on the vehicle involved, to please get in touch. 

“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 June 13.”
