A coach is being examined by police after a 19-year-old man was found dead next to a Shropshire road.
Arnold Higgins was found on the verge beside the A529 on 8 November.
West Mercia Police believes Mr Higgins, of Sycamore Way in Market Drayton, was struck by a vehicle as he walked home from his job at a farm in Adderley.
Investigating officers have traced a 52-seater coach and said forensic tests were under way to see whether it was involved in the collision.
The coach company that owns the vehicle is assisting with inquiries, a police spokesperson said.
The force has renewed an appeal for witnesses and an inquest into the death will follow.
Earlier this week, Mr Higgins's family released a statement saying he "lived life to the full" and would never be forgotten.
