POLICE have named the victim of a car crash that one left dead and three needing hospital treatment on the East Hampshire border last week.

A 44-year-old from Liss died after a silver Jaguar left the B2070 between Liphook and Rake last Friday and collided with a tree.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene while the driver and two boys, aged 12 and 14, were taken to hospital following the tragedy near the St Luke's & Rockfield Lodge junction.

Sussex Police confirmed on Tuesday that Stuart Mcgibbon died in the crash around 3pm on the southbound dual carriageway.

The driver was taken to Southampton General Hospital after suffering serious injuries, while the boys were taken to Royal Surrey County Hospital. Their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

The road was closed for much of the afternoon following the accident, which took place in wet conditions, with firefighters from Grayshott, Petersfield and Cosham taking part in the rescue operation.

Officers investigating the collision are appealing for witnesses or anyone who may have captured dashcam footage from the area at the time.
