Family pays tribute to young mum killed on A36
9:23am Monday 30th September 2013 in Romsey
THE family of a young woman who died when she was hit by a car on a busy Hampshire road have paid tribute to her.
Mother-of-three Kayleigh Quinn, 27, of Park Road, Fordingbridge, died at the scene of the crash on the A36 at Plaitford.
She was hit by a silver Volkswagen Golf heading south at 11.15pm on Tuesday, September 24.
Kayleigh’s family issued a statement describing her as a “very spirited and fun-loving person”.
They added: “She had a very kind and caring nature and was always trying to help others.
“She loved spending time caring for her horses but her greatest love was for her three children.
“They meant the whole world to her. Kayleigh will be greatly missed by her family and friends.”
The Volkswagen driver, a 45-year-old man from Portsmouth, was shaken but uninjured.
He was arrested on suspicion of causing death by driving without due care and attention and was bailed until October 31, pending police enquiries.
The road was closed for about six hours to allow for a full investigation and recovery of the scene.
Flowers and messages of sympathy have been left at the scene, with one card reading: “You were the love of my life. You will be badly missed. Gone but never forgotten. I love you so much babe.”
Another read: “Can’t believe you are gone. You will always be in our hearts. You will be missed so much.”
Police are investigating reports that Kayleigh had been standing in the middle of the road prior to the crash.
She had been drinking at a nearby pub, the Red Rover, shortly before her death.
Police are still appealing for witnesses to come forward.
Anyone with information should contact the Whitchurch roads policing unit on 101, quoting Operation Subdivision.
