Driver Who Fled Fatal Crash Arrested
Police have arrested a man who ran off after a fatal crash near Winchester.
Police were called to the A3051 Winchester Road shortly after 8.22am on Friday January 28th 2010 after reports of a collision, involving a grey Volkswagen Passat and a silver Peugeot 206.
The driver of the Peugeot 206, 30 year old Gary Rigby, was pronounced dead at the scene. His front seat passenger, a 27 year old woman, is in a critical condition at North Hampshire Hospital.
