A MOTORCYCLIST has been injured after an alleged hit and run on the Wessex Way this afternoon.

Police were called to the scene, close to the exit with the Richmond Hill Roundabout, at 4.15pm after reports of a collision between a gold Toyota Yaris and a yellow CBR motorbike.

The road remained open following the incident, with an ambulance and police car parked in the centre of the carriageway.

Speaking to the Echo at the scene, a police officer said the 20-year-old casualty had sustained minor injuries and was taken to Bournemouth Hospital for treatment.

He added that police are appealing for witnesses and want to speak to a male driving a gold Toyota Yaris. 

Anybody with information should contact Dorset Police on 101.

No doubt more to this than meets the eye. A toyota yaris is hardly a boy racer car of choice compared with a 20 year old on a high performance CBR.

That's a bit of a harsh comment automatically blaming the lad on the CBR - to be fair it was probably some old buzzard in the toyota yaris not watching what they were doing!

Could be a CBR 125 - hardly 'high powered' and why would the car driver have to be a 'boy racer' - could just as easily be an 'old git'

That's not a 'high performance' CBR, it looks distinctly like the baby of the family to me - look at how skinny the rear tyre is!

As for alleged hit and run, well, if the car that hit the motorcycle (or car the motorcycle hit) isn't at the scene, clearly it is hit and run, or it wasn't a collision in the first place and the police wouldn't be bothered about finding the car.

I haven't commented but what did stand out to me was 'had sustained minor injuries'.

You might want to hold back on the histrionics a bit?

That was my boy on that bike and no its not a high performance bike.
He don't drink or do drugs. He may have only suffered minor injuries but the shock is just as bad.
Some people just have no sole like the driver of the car.. Why would you run from an accident unless you have something to be worried about??? Like no insurance.. The driver will be found and dealt with by the law.. There's plenty of cctv round there..

Pleased to hear the rider suffered only minor injuries.

Good luck with the Police bothering to do anything.

They didn't some years ago when a similar thing happened to my daughter.

There was a witness who named the car driver, matching paint on my daughter's bike and the car and they still dropped the case for "lack of evidence".

They even refused to give us the woman's name and address (because, not having been convicted, she was deemed innocent!!) so we had to fork out for the damage to the bike and a new helmet, as my daughter's insurance was third party / theft only.

Bit unfair to blame the police before they have even caught the driver.
I'm pretty sure they will do their bit to bring this motorist to account. The system usually seems to break down when the courts get involved and
don't throw the book at these maniacs.
What we need to keep hit & run drivers off the road is competent
magistrates. Maybe a 3 month minimum sentence (to be served in prison and not on parole) for hit & run offences would encourage
drivers to stop at scene rather than to bugger off. When the judges whine about mandatory sentencing, the public needs to point out to
them that we want it because they have failed to use their discretion
wisely in the past.

If it was a 125 it was evenly matched with the yaris for power so maybe they were having a race?
