Tribute Released to Man Who Died in 'Hit And Run'

The family of a pedestrian who died following a collision in Andover have released a tribute.

Officers were called at 11.08pm on Sunday 14 October following reports of a collision between a male pedestrian and a motorcycle on New Street.

The pedestrian – William Hatherall, 48, of Cobb Drive, Andover – was taken to Southampton General Hospital for treatment to serious injuries where he subsequently passed away.

William’s family have released the following tribute:

“Will was too young and too vibrant to lose his life so suddenly and in such horrendous circumstances.

“He was an amazing person who packed a huge amount of life experiences into his 48 years. A bit if a party animal, he was a well-known character around the Andover area; loved by all who knew him.

“He leaves behind his long-term partner Debbie, step sons Andre and Aston, daughter Jodi, brother Tom, father Bill and step-father Ross. He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.”

Officers have charged a man as part of this investigation.

Darren Lampard, 52, of no fixed abode, was charged with causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving, driving without insurance, and driving without a license.

He is due to appear at Winchester Crown Court on 22 November.
