UPDATED: Head-on collision closes road at Three Legged Cross

Bournemouth Echo: The Ford Focus involved in a collision on the B3072 at Verwood The Ford Focus involved in a collision on the B3072 at Verwood

EMERGENCY services were called to the scene of a head-on accident which closed a Dorset road.

Police, fire and ambulance crews attended the collision on the B3072 Verwood Road at Three Legged Cross, this afternoon.

They were called at 2.48pm by a member of the public.

The crash involved a Ford Kuga containing a family from Verwood and a Ford Focus containing a man in his early 20s and a 19-year-old woman, also from Verwood.

The occupants of the Focus were taken to Poole Hospital as a precaution but were believed to have only suffered minor injuries.

The family in the Kuga were shaken but unharmed.

The road was closed between Ringwood Road at Verwood and Newtown Road at Three Legged Cross. It re-opened after around an hour and a half.

A spokesperson for Dorset Fire and Rescue Service confirmed that two crews from Verwood Fire Station attended the scene, but one later stood down.

Firefighters administered first aid until ambulance crews arrived.

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance were also initially called to attend, but received a second call to say that their assistance was no longer necessary.

Sgt Stuart Pitman of the Dorset Police traffic unit at Poole said: "Our officers are working closely with the family to help support them at this difficult time.

"We closed the road for about an hour and a half pending investigation. We would like to thank the community for their patience while the road closure was in place."

Any witnesses are asked to call police on 101.

what a waste of taxpayers money... a helicopter, two fire engines two ambulances at least 3 police cars (that I saw maybe more that could not see)
and all for what , the cars bumped there wheels together ... big deal.
The road closed for 1 and a half hours. When I saw the Air ambulance looking for somewhere to land I thought there must be serious injuries
but no just "shaken".. I guess that will add another 1% to our car insurance.

Your comment manages to be pathetic and annoying in equal measures.

there is some damage to the right front wing but the headlights,front bumper and radiator are all intact so hardly a head on collision

I imagine the term 'head on collision' just simply means both cars were heading towards each other rather than one car rear ending the other.
