The 22 year-old woman driving the Volkswagen Fox sustained a serious head injury and was taken to Poole Hospital for treatment. Her condition is reported to be potentially serious. 

Police arrested two Bournemouth men aged 22 and 24 at the scene on suspicion of driving offences.

The three men are assisting the police with their enquiries into the incident.

“I am also keen to hear from any motorists who witnessed the manner of driving of any of the vehicles involved, or captured the collision of vehicles on dashcam. 

“Finally, we are also looking to speak to a man who was seen in the area at the time who may have information relating to the collision. He is described as white, approximately six feet tall, of heavy build and was wearing a blue top and cream shorts.”
