A man in his 40s who was riding a bicycle has died after a collision with a car in Wimborne.
A local woman aged in her 20s was arrested on suspicion of driving offences.
The incident happened on the B3078 Julians Road involving a red Vauxhall Corsa just after 10pm on Wednesday 4 October 2023.
Road closures are in place along Julians Road between the Pye Corner roundabout and the junction of the A31. These closures are expected to remain in place for some time.
Police Sergeant Gareth Thomas, of the traffic unit, said: “An investigation into this collision is underway and I am appealing to anyone who saw what happened or witnessed the Corsa being driven immediately after the collision to please get in touch.
“I am particularly keen to hear from any motorists who were travelling along that stretch of the road at the time and may have captured anything of relevance on their dashcam.
“The road is expected to remain closed for some time while we carry out our detailed examination of the area.
“Our thoughts today are with the man’s family and friends at this very difficult time.”
