Family tribute to Rosie Evans who died in A35 caravan crash at Askerswell
The family of a woman who died as a result of a collision on the A35 has issued a tribute to her.
The incident, in which a Landrover Discovery towing a caravan overturned, happened at 1pm on Saturday August 24 on the A35 at Askerswell.
The front seat passenger of the Landrover, 48-year-old Rosemary Evans from Poole, who was known as Rosie, sustained serious injuries and died on Tuesday at Southampton General Hospital.
Her family have released the following statement: “From the moment we heard this terrible news, the family has been devastated and our hearts go out to Rosie's husband, Mike, and son, Josh.
“Rosie was such a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend – losing her has left a hole in our hearts and our lives that we will never be able to fill.
“So many nice things have been said about Rosie since the accident and there have been some lovely tributes posted on the internet. The family would like to thank those people for all their kind words.
“We would now ask that we are left alone for a period and given some time to deal with the aftermath of this terrible tragedy.”
The coroner's officer for Dorset said an inquest into Mrs Evans' death was opened yesterday morning and has been adjourned until January next year.
Friends of Mrs Evans on Facebook have been paying tribute by changing their profile pictures to roses.
Anyone with information on the collision is asked to call PC Gareth Bacon of Weymouth Police on 101, quoting incident number 24:277.
