Teenage boy killed in crash in Hartley Wintney

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
