Fail-to-stop collision in Christchurch - appeal

24 March 2016

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward following a fail-to-stop collision in Christchurch.

At around 3.30pm on Tuesday 22 March 2016, a collision occurred on the A35 Stony Lane roundabout between a small red car and a silver BMW.

The red car, which was being driven from the Christchurch direction, was in collision with the BMW which had entered the roundabout from Highcliffe toward Christchurch.

The occupants of the BMW – a man and woman aged in their 80s and a woman aged in her 50s – were very shaken but uninjured. The car was significantly damaged so it could no longer be driven.

The driver of the red car failed to stop at the scene.

Police Constable Charley Dunstan, of Christchurch police, said: “I believe the small red car involved in this collision will have sustained extensive front-end damage.

“I am appealing to anyone who has information about the person involved in this collision, or has seen a small red car with damage to the front of the vehicle, to please call me on 101.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 22:180. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
