A thirty three year old man has been jailed for causing death by dangerous driving in Fife.

Darren McPhee was sentenced to four years and eight months at Edinburgh's High Court on Monday (June 24).

He was arrested following a crash with a pedestrian in Cowdenbeath on September 14 last year.

Stephen Davis, a 46-year-old man, died at the scene.

McPhee, the driver of the car, fled the area and was traced by officers in Moray a few days later.

Road Policing Sergeant Lee Walkingshaw said: "Our thoughts remain with Mr Davis' family and friends and I hope that today’s sentencing brings them some comfort and allows them to move forward.

“Darren McPhee showed absolutely no regard for the law and his reckless actions highlight the devastating consequences of dangerous driving and the lasting impact it has on those involved, along with their families and friends.”
