A seven-year-old boy critically injured in a crash which killed his dad has also died, police have said.
The pair were struck by a car on the A4119 at Talbot Green, Rhondda Cynon Taff, at about 00:30 GMT.
The 43-year-old father and his child were crossing the southbound carriageway, close to the entrance of Arthur Llewellyn Jenkins furniture store, when they were hit.
A 22-year-old driver of an Alfa Romeo has been arrested.
Officers are appealing for witnesses.
Bryan George, who lives close to the road, said he had seen the father and son with other members of their family, walking along and singing together before the collision.
He believes they were trying to cross at a point where there is a footpath.
