Mr Thomas then immediately informed emergency services and the road was closed for eight hours as police investigated the scene.
Councillor Jamie Adams said the incident had ‘stunned and saddened’ the local community: "It fills me with sadness" he said.
"There is such a sense of disbelief. Firstly, that this could take place in a village where cars are limited to 40 mph and also that nobody knew about it."
Cllr Adams added that although he didn’t want to draw any premature conclusions, the incident underlined the need to take care when driving in the village.
Speaking at the scene of the crash on Sunday, Chief Inspector Mark Bleasdale said he offered his ‘deepest sympathies’ to the families of the deceased.
He added that police were eager to speak to motorists who had travelled along the road between 7pm on Saturday and 8am on Sunday morning. Anyone with information can contact Haverfordwest Policing
