Main article content
The family of a woman who died in a collision in Fareham have paid tribute to her, as police continue to appeal for information.
We were called just after 9.30pm on Thursday 28 September to a collision involving a car and a pedestrian on Gosport Road.
The pedestrian was crossing the road near the roundabout with Old Gosport Road at the time of the collision and was taken to hospital with serious injuries, where she has since sadly passed away.
The family of Isabelle Horton, 81, from Fareham, have now paid tribute to her, saying: “Our mum was a wonderful woman who adored her family.
“She was funny, kind and loved to laugh. We will choose to remember the good times. She will be missed by so many people.
“Our thanks go to the emergency services and the people who stopped to help.”
The driver of the car, a 53-year-old man from Locks Heath, was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by careless driving and being the driver of a vehicle failing to stop after a road accident. He has been released from police custody but remains under investigation while our enquiries continue.
Officers investigating the collision are still keen to hear from anyone with information, which may assist their enquiries.
We are particularly keen to hear from the driver of a small, light coloured car who may have seen Mrs Horton immediately prior to crossing the road.
