AN INVESTIGATION is underway after a man died after being struck by a car on a Hampshire road.

The 61-year-old pedestrian died after a collision with a vehicle in Ringwood Road, Netley Marsh, near Totton, at around 10.30pm on Easter Sunday.

It is understood the man was from the Totton area but has not yet been named by police.

Residents told how around five police cars were on the scene together with three ambulances, an ambulance officer and a team leader.

The man sustained multiple injuries and was taken to Southampton General Hospital where he died later.

Rich Maidment of Ringwood Road said he saw a man walk past his house at the time after being alerted by his dog.

Mr Maidment, 34, said: “I saw a guy walking by the house as it got my dog all excited. Then a while later I heard the dog still growling and I saw all these lights outside. I came outside and saw all the police cars along the road and I found out the man had been hit in the road. The police and ambulance must have been here for an hour-and-a-half.”

Mr Maidment added it was the first road incident he could remember happening in the area. He said: “My family have been here for four years and nothing like this has happened before.”

Another resident, of nearby Tatchbury Lane, said he was alerted by lights flashing through his window.

He said: “The police closed off traffic along Tatchbury and I realised something serious had happened when they started putting tape across the road. It’s quite a reasonable area for traffic so you don’t usually see much happen here. But the police had everything under control and calm.”

The driver was uninjured and was not arrested.

Officers are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information should contact Totton Roads Policing Unit on 101.

Very sad, RIP.

I hope the man wasn't forced on to the road by the cars which are parked blocking the pavement on a daily basis there (mainly the car wash, and few house just before and after). It's a 30 limit down there too and not many stick to that in my experience.

The council (NFDC and Hampshire) and the police have done absolutely nothing when I've complained about people persistently obstructing the local pavements and cycle routes with their cars.

What a sad opportunist you are. A man has died and you use this forum as a method of venting your frustration. Perhaps you should consider talking to those that you say cause obstruction and then in return they may point out that riding a bike on a pavement is illegal.

Our thoughts are with the family.

It may not be a word in the dictionary but it sums you up a treat.

I made up a word once too but it doesn't mean a thing as I have left school and use big boy words now.
