By Western Morning News  |  Posted: August 23, 2012

Police have asked for help tracing the family of a man who died two days after being hit by a bus in Exeter.

Peter Davies died on August 17 as a result of a collision with a single decker bus in Church Road, Alphington. He was yesterday formally named by police, who have appealed for information on tracking down the 54-year-old's family.

Mr Davies, generally known as Pete, lived in Alphington and worked as a private care assistant.

Officers investigating the collision have been informed that he had one brother who lives in the Midlands and another who lives 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 is asked to contact the serious collisions unit on 101.
