Tributes have been paid to a father who “lived for his kids” who died during a crash on the A34 near Basingstoke last month.
Craig Hall, 36, of Ainsworth Way, Middlesborough, was killed when the mini-bus he was travelling in collided with a lorry on the A34 southbound.
The collision happened just south of the Sutton Scotney Services at 4.40am on February 26.
Mr Hall, a passenger in the mini-bus, was pronounced dead at the scene.
On Friday, his family paid tribute to him. Craig’s wife, Jackie Hall, said: “Craig was a family man with a heart of gold. He would do anything to help anyone. If he got a phone call in the early hours from a friend for a lift then he would get up and do it.
“He was a real joker and prankster.
“His loss left such a massive hole in everyone’s lives. He lives for his kids and me. He was not just my best friend, but also my soul mate.”
A 19-year-old man, from Durham, has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and driving whilst unfit through drugs.
He has been released from custody but remains under investigation.
