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.

A man, believed to be the driver of the Passat, left the scene of crash on foot, prior to the arrival of the emergency services. He's now been arrested in suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He's been bailed until April.

Witnesses to the crash, or anyone who saw either vehicle prior to it, is asked to contact Hampshire Constabulary on 101, quoting Operation Zingel. Alternatively, call the Crimestoppers charity line on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously.
