A MAN has been charged with death of a pedestrian who was struck during a collision in Andover.

Officers were called at 11.08pm on Sunday, October 14, following reports of a collision between a male pedestrian and a motorcycle in New Street.

The pedestrian, a 48-year-old man from Andover, suffered life threatening injuries and was taken to Southampton General Hospital but has since died.

His next of kin are being supported by specialist officers at this time.

It was alleged that the motorbike did not stop at the scene of the collision but officers have now charged a man in relation to the death.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court this morning (October 18).
