Reward offered after moped crash

Police investigating a fatal crash on the A31 continue to appeal for the driver of a Volvo XC90, believed to be involved, to come forward – with the Crimestoppers charity now offering a reward of up to £1,000.

Officers were called at 8.20pm on Sunday to the collision on the westbound carriageway near the Ashley Heath roundabout.

The rider of a red moped, believed to be a 16-year-old Ringwood girl, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A number of vehicles were involved in the incident and one of these vehicles – a Volvo XC90 – left the scene before the police arrived.

“We know that the moped was upright at the time of the collision and believe that the Volvo XC90 was the first vehicle to collide with it.

“I need to trace the Volvo and urge anyone with information to contact me. I particularly appeal to the driver to get in touch.

“The front of the vehicle will be damaged. If anyone is aware of a Volvo XC90 which has sustained damage or has been repaired in the last few days, they should call the police urgently.”

– Traffic Inspector Matt Butler

Members of the public will only be eligible for the cash reward if they call the Crimestoppers line on 0800 555111, with information that leads to the arrest and charge of an offender.
