Police have named the 54-year-old man who died following a collision with a bus in Exeter last Wednesday (15 August) as Peter Davies.
Mr Davies was walking on Church Road in Alphington, Exeter, when he was in collision with a Stagecoach single-decker bus around 3.30pm. He suffered serious injuries and was taken to Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital where he died in the early hours of Friday 17 August.
Mr Davies, generally known as Pete, lived in Alphington and worked as a private care assistant.
Officers investigating the collision have informed Mr Davies’ brother who lives in the Midlands but have been unable to trace a second brother who is believed to live in Wales.
MPC John Larcombe-Ford, from the Force Serious Collisions Unit, said: “We have carried out extensive enquiries but have yet to trace him and we are now appealing to anyone who knows Mr Davies’ family to get in touch with police.
“Mr Davies was described by friends as a well liked and very caring man who will be sadly missed in the Alphington area. He was very well known in Alphington and we hope someone can assist with our enquiries to enable us to convey this very sad news to his family.”
Anyone who can help police trace Mr Davies’ brother or may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact the Serious Collisions Unit in Exeter on 101, quoting reference 0481 of 15/08/12.
