Fail-to-stop collision in Ferndown – witness appeal

08 October 2019
Officers investigating a fail-to-stop collision in Ferndown are appealing for witnesses or anyone with relevant dashcam footage to come forward.

At 5.34am on Monday 7 October 2019 Dorset Police received a report of an injured cyclist on the A31 between the Ameysford and Palmersford roundabouts. 

The cyclist – aged in his 60s and from Wimborne – sustained a head injury and was taken to Poole Hospital. His condition is described as serious.

Police Constable Craig Jeffery, of the traffic unit, said: “Following enquiries we believe that the cyclist was involved in a collision and the driver failed to stop at the scene.

“We recovered a wing mirror from the scene. I am urging anyone who was travelling in the area at the time to check their vehicles as the driver may not have realised they were involved in a collision.

“I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident or may have relevant dashcam footage to assist my investigation to come forward.”
