Tribute To Hampshire Crash Couple
The ''absolutely devastated'' family of a husband and wife killed in a Christmas Day car crash said today the couple were travelling to spend time with their two-year-old grandson.
Ann Goodrich, 57, and her 56-year-old husband Paul Goodrich, from Fleet, Hampshire, were pronounced dead after the crash on the B3349 Odiham Road at Heckfield Heath, near Basingstoke.
In a statement released by police, the family said:
''Ann and Paul Goodrich were on their way to spend Christmas Day with their son Darren, daughter Hannah and her family, when the tragic, fatal accident occurred.
''A close-knit family, they were looking forward to also enjoying the day with their grandson, Daniel, aged two.
''Ann and Paul, devoted and much loved parents, will be greatly missed. We are absolutely devastated.''
A 29-year-old man from Farnborough, believed to be the driver of the VW Golf involved, received medical attention at the scene before being taken to hospital with serious injuries. His condition is unknown.
Officers were called at 10.05am on Christmas Day after a member of the public reported that a car had been involved in a crash.
Hampshire Police said only the Golf was involved in the accident and they continue to appeal for witnesses.
