New Milton pedestrian death: Police return to scene

Police investigating the death of an 86-year-old pedestrian hit by a car in Hampshire are to return to the scene, one week on.

Charles Putz, from New Milton, was hit by a silver Peugeot 306 as he crossed Caird Avenue in the town just before 17:45 GMT on 30 January.

He was taken to hospital but later died.

The driver, a 21-year-old man from Lymington, was not injured. Police are appealing for witnesses.

Sgt Andy Gwyer said officers were keen to speak to any pedestrians or motorists who were in the area, or Ashley Road, or at the Tesco roundabout at the time.
