Witness appeal following fail-to-stop collision in Bournemouth

22 November 2021
Officers investigating a reported fail-to-stop road traffic collision in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to come forward.

The incident occurred at around 11.05pm on Friday 19 November 2021. A woman aged in her 30s was walking along Holdenhurst Road toward the Springbourne roundabout, when she was involved in a collision with a black motorcycle. Officers attended, along with the ambulance service, and the woman was taken to hospital for treatment to serious injuries.

It was reported that the motorcycle failed to stop at the scene. 

Police Constable John Barron, of Dorset Police, said: “We are continuing to carry out a number of enquiries to try and identify the motorbike and rider involved in this collision.

“Firstly, I would like to thank the members of the public who helped the injured woman and called the emergency services. Unfortunately, those on scene have not seen the registration number of the motorbike involved.

“I would like to appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the incident, taken a photo or have dashcam footage of the motorbike to please get in touch with us to enable officers to gather all available evidence.”
