Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert


Officers investigating reports of a fail-to-stop collision in Poole are appealing for witnesses and anyone with dashcam footage to come forward.

Dorset Police was called at 5.55pm on Tuesday 9 November 2021 to reports that a fail to stop collision and road rage incident had occurred at around 4.30pm on a zebra crossing along Dorchester Road involving a Mercedes car and a 16-year-old male cyclist. 

The cyclist sustained minor injuries and a number of people stopped at the scene to check on his welfare.

It is reported that the driver of the Mercedes did initially stop but failed to provide his details and left the scene a short time later. 

Subsequent enquiries have established that the driver did contact the Force soon after the collision to provide their details. 

An investigation is underway into the incident. 

Police Constable Thomas Henley, of Poole police, said: “I am aware that a number of members of the public stopped at the scene, including someone who may have captured the incident on dashcam. I would ask anyone who has any information or footage in relation to this collision to please contact Dorset Police.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55210181180. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or call Freephone 0800 555 111.
