The family of a man who died in a fatal road traffic collision in Poole have paid tribute to their loved one.

Dorset Police received a report at 5.35pm on Sunday 13 February 2022 of a collision near to the junction of Station Road and Church Road in Ashley Cross. Enquiries by officers indicate the collision also involved a silver Land Rover Freelander and a grey Nissan Pulsar. A 41-year-old Poole man was arrested on suspicion of driving offences and has been released under investigation pending further enquiries. A 79-year-old man from Poole is also assisting with enquiries and attended for a voluntary police interview.

A 32-year-old male pedestrian – named by his family as Chris Lynch from Southampton – suffered serious injuries and was taken to Southampton General Hospital for treatment. Very sadly, he died in hospital on Wednesday 16 February 2022.

Chris’ family has issued the following tribute: “Chris’ tragic death has left an irreparable hole in the hearts of everyone who knew him. He was a devoted, loving and loyal father, husband, son, brother and friend. 

“He had a passion for the outdoors and lived a life full of adventure. Chris never put less than 100% into every aspect of his life, his family, friends, hobbies and career. 

“He was a hero to his young children Kitty and Arthur and soulmate to his wife Ellie. We miss him terribly.”
