Officers investigating a road traffic collision in Poole are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

The collision, which involved an Audi Q3 and a pedestrian, happened on Ashley Road and was reported to police at 3.10pm on Tuesday 20 April 2021.

Officers along with the ambulance service attended and road closures were put in place.

The pedestrian, a local man in his 40s, was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the car was taken to hospital for treatment.

Police Constable Dave Cotterill, of the traffic unit, said: “We are investigating the full circumstances of this collision, but early indication is that it may have been the result of a medical incident.

“I am appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information who has not spoken with officers yet to please come forward.

“Also, I am very keen to hear from anyone who has dashcam footage of the collision itself or the manner of driving of the vehicle involved prior to the incident.

“We appreciate that it was a busy time on the road and the road closures would have affected many motorists. We are very grateful for everyone’s patience during that time.”
