A pedestrian who was in collision with a car on Llanedeyrn Drive in the Maelfa area of Cardiff on Friday January 6 has died as a result of his injuries.


Philip Jones, 74, from Rumney, Cardiff passed away on April 11 in University Hospital Wales.


Philip’s family has issued the following tribute:


“Philip Jones ,74 years old, died on the 11th of April in the UHW Neurology Department, after 3.5 months battling a traumatic brain injury.

“Philip leaves behind his two daughters, two grandchildren, son in law and ex-wife who he remained friends with, no words can express how heartbroken we all are.


“Phil was a larger-than-life character and well known in his community for his sense of humour, love of a chat but ultimately, his willingness to help anyone with anything they needed.


“We would like to thank all the staff at UHW for their exceptional care of Philip.”


South Wales Police is continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the collision and is appealing to anyone who may have seen the collision and who has not yet come forward, anyone who may have dash-cam footage of the incident or anyone who may have seen the manner in which the grey Ford Fiesta was being driven prior to the collision.
