The family of a man who died following a collision on the A31 near Minstead has paid tribute to him.
We were called around 11pm on Monday, 27 December following a collision involving a white Honda Civic and green Ford Focus.
The driver of the Ford, Stephen Swanson, 69, from Talmey Close, Chineham, was taken to Southampton General Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.
His family have been supported by specialist officers.
They said: “‘We would like to say a huge thank you to the public who gave CPR and to the emergency services.
“We also thank Southampton Hospital for their care and support during our dads final days. We are grateful for everyone’s condolences during these sad times.
“Our dad will be missed by many. He was a wonderful dad and grandad and we will treasure all of our amazing memories with him. RIP.”
Officers continue to investigate the collision and remain keen to hear from anyone who can assist their enquiries.
Do you have dash cam footage of either of the vehicles in the moments prior to the collision?
Anyone with information should call 101, quoting the reference 44210517055.
