THE A350 in Lytchett Matravers was closed both ways for more than two hours this morning.

The road shut between the Roundhouse Roundabout and the Old Wareham Road junction at around 7am after a white Citroen Berlingo van was involved in a single-vehicle collision.

However, only minor injuries were sustained by the driver.

A Dorset Police spokesperson said: "The road was closed so that the local authority could attend.

"Police are no longer at the scene."

"single vehicle collision"? You can't have a single vehicle collision. A collision inplies two or more vehicles. More sloppy jounalism.

Exactly! What did it collide with? This is not the first time this wording has been used in a headline.

Thank you. I like it even more when they report a vehicle in collision with a stationary object because that can't happen either. If they are going to use collision then both vehicles/objects must be in motion.

Road closed for 2 hours?

What, for one white-van man?

Who only had minor injuries?

Our beloved public servants - sic - really are having a larf!

Exactly the 'collision' did not close the road for two hours, the doubtless mob handed 'high-viz' response by the authorities did - "A Dorset Police spokesperson said: "The road was closed so that the local authority could attend.", enough said, at that point common sense obviously left the scene!.

I am unclear why criticism of the incorrect use of the word 'collision' for this event is being 'thumbed down'. The word 'collision' defines an impact between a minimum of TWO moving objects. So as stated this incident certainly was not a collision.
