Officers continuing to investigate a fatal road traffic collision in Weymouth are renewing their appeal for witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to come forward.

 Dorset Police was called at 9.41am on Monday 16 November 2020 to reports of a road traffic collision on Lynch Lane involving a pedestrian and a lorry.

 Police Constable Leanne Steedman, of the traffic unit, said: “Our thoughts remain with the family and loved ones of Sarah Lewis at this difficult time.

“We are continuing to urge any witnesses to this collision, or anyone who was driving in the area and may have captured something relevant on dashcam, to please contact us.”
