The family of a teenager who died following a road traffic collision in Romsey have paid tribute to him.
Officers were called at 10.45pm on Thursday 18 May to reports of a VW Golf colliding with a tree on Lee Lane.
The driver, 19-year-old George Dillon from Romsey, suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to Southampton General Hospital where he later passed away.
His family are being supported by specialist officers and have now made the following tribute to George:
"Our son and brother, our hero! George brought love and laughter to everyone who had the privilege to have met him.
"He had a heart as big as a mountain and would do anything for anybody. George had his own unique style, he loved country music, farming and his biggest loves of all were tractors and his cowboy boots.
"George’s studies came to fruition just days ago when he passed his final year studying agriculture engineering with merit and we couldn’t be more proud. He enjoyed living life to the full, he was so incredibly sociable and adored each and every one of his friends.
"Our hearts are shattered and we miss him more than words could ever express. We are so immensely grateful for the amazing 19 years and 11 months he gave us. Georgie our beautiful, gentle, loving boy - thank you so much for the amazing most joyful precious time we had with you. All our love xx."
