Men injured after car collided with tree in care home grounds 'serious but stable'

First published in News by

TWO men injured in a collision in Poole on Saturday night are in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

One of the men, whom paramedics found unconscious with serious head injuries at the scene, had been fighting for his life over the weekend – but Dorset Police confirmed he was now in a stable condition.

The horrifying crash happened on Alexandra Road shortly after 9pm on Saturday.

The two casualties were thrown out of the Volkswagen Golf they were travelling in after it careered off the road and hit a wall at Alexandra House Residential Home.

A number of residents of the road alerted by a “horrendous noise” rushed to the scene to try to help the two young men – comforting them as best they could until emergency services arrived.

The men, aged 20 and 23 and both from Poole, were taken to Poole Hospital with serious injuries. Dorset Police are appealing for anyone who saw the car in the area around 9pm to contact them on 101.

If you do try to report this kind of thing it is a good 15 minutes to get through to the police so when you do they will be long gone. Believe me these are not the only idiots driving round parkstone like this and I would encourage everyone who sees this kind of behaviour to report it. Hospitals have got quite enough on their plate without A+E waits being even longer when people like this jump the already very long queues.

Yes quite. Driving like a fool way beyond your abilities and then crashing and hurting yourself and your best mate, risking others, and costing the emergency services time and money isn't a great achievement but no one deserves to be all messed up in the hospital, get well soon lads

Quite....most people do not deserve to die!
however when your stupidity puts others at risk you need to soak up the wrath
Afterwards. Only by the grace of god did they not kill anyone in the street or in the home.....I live near here and I see them race up and down that road like idiots....children use this road due to its proximity to the park....would you be defending them if they rolled the car over and killed 3 kids? I doubt it!!
