Tribute paid to woman who died following A31 collision

We are now in a position to identify a woman who died following a collision on the A31 between Stoney Cross and Burley.

Officers were called to the single-vehicle collision on the westbound carriageway at around 6.15pm on Friday 11 January.

The car, a maroon-coloured Citroen Xsara Picasso, left the carriageway and came to rest in a ditch at the side of the road.

Karrenne Vivien Anderson-Dawson aged 57, of Tintern Grove, Southampton, had been driving the Citroen and was taken to hospital following the collision.

She died in hospital a couple of hours later.

Karrenne’s family have paid the following tribute:

"We are still getting over the shock of losing a mother, Nanny, partner, daughter and a friend. Karrenne was always a cheerful, chatty woman to anyone who listened.

“She will truly be missed by all of the family and friends who have known and loved her for being herself, not letting anyone knock her down and keeping her head up high.

“We truly miss her and there isn't a day gone by that we aren’t thinking about her. Rest in peace Karrenne. We love you forever."

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call police on 101, quoting 44190013278.
