6:00am Thursday 16th February 2012 in New Forest
A PENSIONER has died after a four-car crash on a major Hampshire road last night.
The man in his 70s, who was driving a Daihatsu, was seriously injured in the collision on the A31 near Ringwood, and was later pronounced dead.
No one in the other three cars - two Fords and a Vauxhall - was reported to have been hurt in the crash, which happened shortly before 6pm, near the Ringwood Flyover.
The road was closed for much of the night.
Police said the man who died, who was from Surrey, was travelling alone in the car.
Officers are now in the process of informing his next of kin.
Police are appealing for any witnesses to call Sergeant Andy Tester at the Roads Policing Unit at Whitchurch police station, quoting Operation Calvert, on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
