Steven Johnson was involved in a  hit and run, which took his life while walking along the Romsey Road at 10.34 pm on Friday the 19 April 2013. Police are appealing for any witnesses to help identify the hit and run driver.  It is thought an  R registration old style Vauxhall Astra may be involved. 

Hundreds of tributes have been laid at Steven's former school in Redbridge as well as at the scene of the accident by family and friends.  My sympathy goes out to Steven's family and friends and I hope the driver is brought to justice.  When accidents involving untraced drivers occur it is possible to pursue a claim for compensation against the Motor Insurance Bureau. This will be little comfort for Steven's family but may provide some financial compensation.
