Kingsbridge Police posted: "Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the young man. On a personal note, we had to close the A38, divert traffic, and help the cars off the A38 which were stuck between the scene and the previous off slip. Everyone was really understanding and patient and for that, we thank you."

Anyone who was travelling on the A38, northbound or southbound, in the vicinity of the Buckfastleigh junction at the time and who may have dashcam footage of the vehicle is urged to come forward. 

Call police on 101, or email 101@dc.police.uk, quoting log 704 of 18/10/20.
