XC90 leaving the scene of an accident

At around 20:30 on Sunday 24 February a 16 year old girl riding a twist-and-go scooter was killed attempting to join the A31 a Ringwood, Hampshire. This is a particularly difficult junction, and the site of weekly accidents. I saw this girl every morning (taking my own daughter to school) - all the proper gear, all the right moves. I'm aware...

I hope the have caught the shit that did this. My deepest sympathies to the girl's family. I ride or drive along this stretch of road every day on my commute from Southampton to Ferndown and there's ALWAYS an incident at this junction every week. I think it's about time this junction was sorted out. Maybe it's about time this junction was looked at in detail before anyone else gets killed (could be me next time).

Latest is that it's a 58 year old man from Ashford in Kent, who is a banned driver. I hope they lock the bastard up for a very long time. Perhaps MCN could put this article on the front news section, as it deserves more coverage I think?

A health and safety consultant has appeared in court charged with causing the death of a 16-year-old motorcyclist in a hit-and-run.

Brian Hampton, 58, faces a string of charges including causing death by careless driving, driving while disqualified, driving without insurance, failing to stop at an accident and failing to report an accident.

He pleaded not guilty to causing death by careless driving and did not enter a plea to the other charges.

Police launched a nationwide search after moped rider Jade Clark was struck by a Volvo XC90 on the A31 in St Leonards, Dorset, at 8.23pm on February 24.

A post mortem showed the teenager, from Ringwood, Hampshire, died of a severe head injury.

Officers ruled out more than 1000 vehicles registered between 2003 and 2007 before arresting Hampton, from Shadoxhurst, Kent, and seizing a Volvo XC90.

Rewards totalling £15,000 had been offered for information leading to a charge.

Hampton, who works as a railway health and safety consultant in Poole, Dorset, appeared at Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court on March 25. He was remanded until April 22 and faces trial at Crown Court.
