Pedestrian who died after Gwynedd crash is named

A man who died after a traffic collision in Bryncrug, Gwynedd has been named as Anthony Brown.

The 38-year-old from Wolverhampton was a pedestrian involved in a collision late on Saturday October 5th.

His family described him as ‘loved’ and thanked the emergency services who ‘did their best to save Anthony.’

Anthony was loved by all his family and he will be missed immensely. He has travelled to North Wales by train and was staying locally where we know he had enjoyed a night out in Tywyn on Friday evening and was looking forward to the rest of his weekend.

We would like to issue our heartfelt thanks to all of the emergency services who did their best to save Anthony. We would now ask for privacy at this most difficult time.


Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the incident which happened after 9:45pm and involved a grey Mercedes Vito van.

We continue to appeal to anybody who may have been travelling along the A493 between Tywyn and Bruncrug between 9pm and 9:45pm and who may have seen a pedestrian walking in the area.

A member of the public called in at the local police station at 9:46pm to report a man walking into the road and an officer responded immediately. However, sadly, despite the effort of the first police officer on scene who carried out CPR with assistance from members of the public prior to the arrival of the Ambulance Service, Mr Brown was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anybody who was travelling and who may have dash cam footage, or any local properties that has private CCTV is asked to contact us immediately.
