A MALE pedestrian was taken to Poole Hospital tonight after being injured in a crash involving two cars in Bournemouth.

The man was hurt following the accident at the junction of Alma Road and Heron Court Road in Winton just before 8pm.

Emergency services attended and police closed the busy road for an hour and a half.

The two cars involved were a black Skoda Octavia - registered to a Poole keeper - and a black Vauxhall Astra - registered to a Bournemouth keeper.

A Dorset police spokesperson could not say how serious the injuries were, but said the pedestrian was conscious and breathing at the scene.

'Road tax'? Keep up with the times, no such thing.

Just so everyone knows the pedestrian was actually on footpath when the car hit him. My Daughter was on way to a leaders meeting and as a first aider with Scouts and RDA at hospital she comforted the man and checked his injuries then assisted the paramedics when they arrived. Well done Sian Goodchild Im so proud of you.

You're being pedantic. We all know what is meant by the term "road tax". It's a convention left over from the past that many people still use and understand.

It's about time they put filter lights on this busy junction. It's not the first time there has been a serious accident there and it won't be the last. I use this junction everyday and people take ridiculous risks as there is not enough time for cars to turn right at any of the lights on this crossing before they change to green the other side. People get impatient and things like this happen. Hope the pedestrian recovers quickly!

A convention that's left over from 1937 so there can't be that many left alive that can actually remember paying it.
Move with the times Dorset, move with the times....

Maybe we should still refer to the council tax as the window tax, remember that?.
