Officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to come forward following a serious injury collision in East Dorset.

Dorset Police received a report at 2.23pm on Wednesday 15 June 2022 of a collision involving a Mercedes Benz A Class, a Volkswagen Tourag and a blue Kia Sportage on the A31 between the Canford Bottom roundabout and the junction with Forest Links Road.

The driver of the Kia – a woman aged in her 50s from Hampshire – sustained serious injuries and was taken to Poole Hospital for treatment.

The driver of the Mercedes and two of the passengers in the vehicle were also taken to hospital for treatment.

The road was closed to allow emergency services to deal with the incident. It reopened at around 4.55pm.

“Finally, I am keen to thank the public for their patience and understanding while the road closures were in place. This allowed emergency services to safely treat the injured people.”
