Family’s touching tribute to ‘loving and kind’ teenager who died in horror crash

A 17-year-old who died after being hit by a car has been described as “loving, kind, fun and happy” by his heartbroken family.

Oli Quartley has been named today as the pedestrian killed in the crash in Blandford, Dorset, involving a silver Vauxhall Insignia on July 17.

The teenager was sadly pronounced at the scene on the A354 Blandford bypass.

His family have released a statement paying tribute to the college student saying he will be “greatly missed”.

They said: “He was loved so much by his parents, wider family and friends. He was loving, friendly, kind, fun and happy.

“He loved being outside; anything on wheels! Scooter, mountain bike or BMX – he loved the skatepark and practising stunts.

“He loved hanging out with his friends in Blandford.

“He had successfully completed his first year at Poole College, passing his brickwork 1 construction course.

“He had just started a summer job in construction, where he was learning new skills and really enjoying himself.

“He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

“Thank you to everyone for the messages of condolence.”

The car driver was treated at the scene with minor injuries, police said in a statement.

“We are continuing our investigation to establish the full circumstances of this collision and would again appeal for any witnesses or anyone with relevant dashcam footage to please contact us if you have not already spoken to police.”
