Officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with relevant dashcam footage to come forward as they investigate a serious injury road traffic collision in Corfe Mullen.

Dorset Police received a report at 4.22pm on Sunday 17 March 2024 of a collision on the B3074 Blandford Road, near to the junction with Ridgeway, involving a white Smart ForTwo and a child pedestrian.

Emergency services attended and the child was taken to hospital for treatment to serious injuries. Their family is aware.

Road closures were put in place to allow the emergency services to respond and for an examination of the collision scene to be carried out.

Sergeant Dave Cotterill, of the traffic unit, said: “We are conducting a full investigation into the circumstances of this collision and I am appealing for any witnesses who have not already spoken to police to please get in touch.

“I would also urge any motorists who were in the vicinity with dashcam fitted to please review their footage to see if they have captured anything of relevance.

“Finally, I would like to thank motorists for their patience and understanding while the road closures have been in place. These are absolutely necessary to enable the emergency services to respond and for a detailed examination of the scene to be carried out.”
