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

Dorset Police received a report at 2.28pm on Friday 10 June 2022 of a collision in Turlin Road involving a single decker bus and a pedestrian.

Officers attended, along with the ambulance service, and the pedestrian – a local man aged in his 40s – was taken by air ambulance to Southampton General Hospital for treatment to serious injuries. His family has been informed.

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

Sergeant Sarah Jones, of the traffic unit, said: “We are carrying out a detailed investigation to establish the full circumstances of this collision.

“I would urge any witnesses who have not already spoken to police to please make contact with us.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who may have captured anything on dashcam footage to assist our enquiries.

“Finally, I would like to thank members of the public for their patience and understanding during the road closures.”
