FROM OUR PARTNERS SOUTH YORKSHIRE POLICE:
Just before 6pm on Monday 11 January, officers received a report of a road traffic collision involving a car and a pedestrian on Carr House Road in Doncaster.
The family of a man killed in a road traffic collision have today (1 February) shared his name, as they urge witnesses to come forward and help officers with their investigation.
The pedestrian, a 65-year-old man who has been named by family as John Cave, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
It is reported that a red Peugeot 207 collided with John. The driver remained on scene and is assisting officers with their enquiries, but to further their investigation additional details are needed.

“As a family we are hurt and grieving our loved one, and at this time ask for privacy.
“We don't hold any malice towards the driver for the collision and want a fair and independent investigation to find out what has happened.”
