A 12-year-old boy who died after being hit by a skip lorry on a zebra crossing has been named by police.

Leo Gregory was pronounced dead in hospital after the crash near Countess Wear, Devon, last week.

A member of the public treated Leo following the incident, in Topsham Road at around 3.10pm on Thursday, before paramedics arrived.

Leo, from Exeter, was taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The driver of the skip lorry was uninjured.

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police appealed for a cyclist captured on CCTV footage from the scene to come forward.

“CCTV footage from the scene shows a cyclist cycling close to the collision just after it has occurred,” the force spokesman said.

“This cyclist travels from Countess Wear roundabout direction, crosses Topsham Road between the scene and the roundabout on to the south side of Topsham Road, then cycles away from the roundabout towards Topsham.

“The cyclist appears to be wearing a dark top and white trousers. Officers are keen to speak to the cyclist as a potential witness who may have information.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Devon and Cornwall Police on 101.
