Detectives investigating a collision involving a car and a pedestrian in Poole are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward.

The collision involving a silver Mercedes A-Class and a pedestrian occurred at around 12.30am today, Friday 17 November 2017 on Lindsay Road, near the entrance to The Oasis. The Mercedes initially left the scene but returned around ten minutes later.

“I would urge anyone who witnessed the collision or who has any further information that can assist our investigation to contact police immediately. I would also like to hear from anyone who might have CCTV footage covering the area.”
