A 28 year old Andover man has been given a five month suspended sentence after pleading guilty to failing to stop at a collision which claimed the life of a cyclist.
Mr Tozer, from Andover, was found lying in the road on the Folly Roundabout by a passing motorist. He was taken by ambulance to hospital where he later died from his injuries.
Hampshire Police arrested 28 year old Michael O’Shea of Roman Way in Andover the following day on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
Appearing at Basingstoke Magistrate’s Court, Mr O’Shea pleaded guilty to failing to stop and was ordered to undertake 250 hours of unpaid work.
The court heard that Mr Tozer was injured on the A343 ‘owing to the presence’ of Mr O’Shea’s vehicle.
Mr O’Shea left the scene and failed to come forward when police launched an appeal.
