A pedestrian who died after being hit by a car in Fife has been named by police.
Stephen Davis was fatally injured when he was struck by a grey Audi on Cowdenbeath High Street on Thursday last week.
The 46-year-old was crossing the road at the High Street in his hometown when he was knocked down at around 8.30pm.
“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,” his family said in a statement.
“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.”
Police are continuing to hunt for the grey coloured Audi SQ5 believed to be the vehicle involved.
Police said it was driven in the direction of Perth Road immediately after the crash.
It is then believed to have been driven towards the north-east of Fife.
Officers are urging anyone who has seen a similar vehicle parked in an unfamiliar place or who has any other information about the vehicle to get in touch.

A 32-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the incident.
