Tributes have been paid to a teenager who died following a collision with a lorry in Hartley Wintney
15-year-old Jack Brown was from Frimley in Surrey.
The collision happened on the A30 at Hartford Bridge on Monday afternoon.
Jack's family said:
Jack was a loving and caring boy who was adored by all his family. His energy and humour touched everyone that met him. He was a fantastic brother and the best son a parent could ask for. We miss you Jack, with all our hearts, and you will never be forgotten.
Police are appealing for witnesses after a fatal road traffic collision in Hartley Wintney. Hampshire Constabulary were called to a collision involving a pedestrian and a lorry travelling north on the A30 at Hartford Bridge on Monday afternoon.
The pedestrian, a teenage boy, was taken to hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
The occupants of the white Volvo lorry, two men aged in their 30s, were not injured, but left shaken by what happened. They are being treated as witnesses to this collision.
No other vehicles were involved.
Police remain in the process of informing all next-of-kin. Hampshire Constabulary won't be in a position to confirm the deceased pedestrian's name in the media until all formal identification procedures are completed.
We're most grateful to all the emergency services and members of the public who provided assistance and first aid in the aftermath of this collision. I'd also like to thank motorists and pedestrians for their patience and understanding while part of the A30 was closed for around three hours during a forensic examination of the collision scene. We're continuing to appeal for more witnesses who may have seen the collision or the events immediately before the impact between the lorry and the pedestrian."
– Investigating officer Acting Sergeant Martin Mundy
More street lights will soon be replaced in parts of Hampshire. The county council is rolling out its programme this autumn, starting with Hartley Wintney. Many of those being replaced are more than thirty years old. The new stock will be energy saving and have dimming controls.
Police are looking to speak to the man pictured in connection with two suspicious incidents in Fleet and Hartley Wintney. Both incidents happened on October 16 and involved the victims, a 70-year-old man and a 47-year-old vulnerable man, being told about gas works needed at their homes.
Both victims were also asked for their contact details. Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101.
Fire crews from Hartley Wintney, Rushmoor & Basingstoke used their ‘blues and twos’ to help the trapped driver guide them in. Two firefighters trained in water rescue then carried the woman to safety. Hants Fire & Rescue have urged everyone to take extra precautions in the rain.
