This road is terrible, people drive far too fast in all conditions and at any time of day. I live on this road and the number of near misses I've had alone is ridiculous,

My girlfriend Claire Harris was the passenger in the taxi last night and looked after the young lady until people arrived. Luckily the driver was doing 20-25mph or it could of been much worse.

Well done to Claire for helping the injured lady. A lot of people would have just walked away or if they were the driver would have driven away.
In Bournemouth the taxis are yellow with a reflective stripe down the side that makes them easier to see and perhaps the pedestrian did not see the black car coming although surely the headlights would have given it away.
The designated crossing point for St Pauls Road is the underpass but unfortunately people will insist on putting their lives at risk by trying to cross the busy dual carriageway.
I am sure that you will join me in wishing the lady a speedy recovery

It probably wouldn't have happened if she didn't order the taxi!

Considering a girl got sexually assaulted in one of the underpass this year and no one was ever prosecuted you are putting your life at risk walking through it late at night! I used to live in halls nearby and you would see people dealing drugs in the St Pauls Rd underpass in the middle of the day! I'm a young female and if I needed to walk that way there is not a chance in hell I'd walk through that underpass alone.
