Man in 'critical condition' after collision in South Ham, Basingstoke
A PEDESTRIAN is fighting for his life after a serious collision near a Basingstoke roundabout.
The incident occurred in Winchester Road, near the Brighton Hill roundabout, at around 7.40pm on Sunday, October 14.
A Chrysler Grand Voyager was in collision with a 40-year-old man from Basingstoke as he walked on Winchester Road.
He suffered a significant head injury which was not initially thought to be life-threatening.
However, his condition worsened on Sunday night and was transferred from Basingstoke hospital to Southampton General Hospital, where he remains in a critical condition.
The car driver, a 36-year-old woman from Basingstoke, was not injured. No arrests have been made.
Sergeant Nigel Burt, from the Whitchurch Roads Policing Unit, said: “Our investigation is focused on piecing together the exact circumstances leading up to this collision.
“I would like to hear from anyone who saw either the vehicle or the pedestrian leading up to it. In particular, I’d like to hear from anyone who was using either the nearby pub or fuel garage around that time on Sunday evening and who may be able to assist with our enquiries.”
Anyone with information can contact Whitchurch Roads Policing Unit, quoting Operation Welham, on 101 or Crimestoppers on 101.
