Bournemouth Echo: A31 partially closed at Corfe Mullen after two-vehicle crash A31 partially closed at Corfe Mullen after two-vehicle crash

PART of the A31 at Corfe Mullen has re-opened after a two-car crash on Sunday morning.

A spokesperson for Dorset Police said the incident took place near to the Caravan Company on Dorchester Road on the A31.

There was a road closure on the westbound carriageway from the A31 Lake Gates roundabout.

Paramedics were on scene "checking" one person, said the police spokesperson.

The Highways Agency was requested to clear debris from the road, which is due to re-open soon.

A member of staff at the Caravan Company said the crash involved a Volkswagon Golf and a Citroen C5.

He said one vehicle hit another and "travelled 200 yards down the road".

A police spokesperson at the scene said no-one had been seriously hurt in the crash. 

One person was treated as a precaution.

How do some many people manage to have accidents on a decent stretch of road? Whoever caused it should be forced to resit their driving test before they are allowed back on the road, assuming they ever sat one on the first place.

So glad no-one was seriously hurt. Was there, by any chance, a cyclist or a caravan involved? (Maybe the driver at fault was looking at the caravans for sale? Tut tut!). If I'd have been there, I'd have taken a picture of someone with their arms crossed.

Too many assumptions...again !!!!

This accident, like others, has taken place on a fairly fast stretch of road that suffers from vehicles leaving the Caravan company, the roadside cafe and the Esso station ...all within a few hundred yards.
Too easy for drivers to misjudge it here. Traffic control measures need to be put in place to stop turning across the traffic flow.

Traffic control needs to be put in place by removing incompetent drivers off the road...
