Officers investigating a serious injury road traffic collision in Lytchett Matravers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with relevant dashcam footage to come forward.

Dorset Police received a report at 4.08pm on Monday 21 March 2022 of a collision in Wareham Road involving a bus and a pedestrian.

Officers attended, along with the ambulance service, and the pedestrian – a 14-year-old local girl – was taken by air ambulance to Southampton General Hospital for treatment to serious injuries. Her family has been informed.

Road closures were put in place as the emergency services responded to the incident. 

Sergeant Mark Scammell, of the traffic unit, said: “We are carrying out a detailed investigation to establish the full circumstances of this collision and I would urge anyone who witnessed the incident to contact us if you have not already spoken to police.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who may have captured anything of relevance on dashcam.

“I would like to thank members of the public for their patience and understanding while the road closures were in place. These were necessarily to allow the emergency services to respond to the incident and for an examination of the scene to be conducted.”
