A couple has been charged in connection with the death of cyclist Richard White on the A338 in Fordingbridge in April. Hampshire Constabulary renewed an appeal for information last month having up until then failed to track down a white Ford Transit flatbed van that was believed to have been involved.
Salisbury residents Noah Chapman and Rosie Pin have been bailed and are due to appear at Southampton Magistrates Court on October 4 and September 29 respectively.
Chapman has been charged with causing death by careless driving, and with perverting the course of justice. Pin has been charged with failing to provide information relating to the identification of a driver when required.
70-year-old cyclist Richard White from Salisbury sustained serious head injuries in the April 28 collision and died in Southampton General Hospital on May 18. Roads policing officers conducted extensive investigations to track down the vehicle which failed to stop at the scene.
