Oliver Quartley, 17, died following a collision with a silver Vauxhall Insignia which happened at around 12.30am on 17 July 2021 on the A354 Blandford bypass between the Badger Roundabout and Two Gates Roundabout, also known as the Wimborne roundabout.
Oliver, who was from the Blandford area, sustained serious injuries and was very sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
His family said in a statement: “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.”
Sergeant Jay Griffin, of the traffic unit, said: “Our thoughts remain with Oliver’s family at this very difficult time.
“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.”
