POLICE officers attended the scene of two incidents on the A350 Poole Road in Lytchett Matravers this morning.

The first call came in to Dorset Police at around 9.02am, with reports of a non-injury collision, at Limberlost, which caused damage to the vehicles involved.

A Black BMW coupe, registered to a man from Wimborne, and a silver Toyota Corolla, registered to a man from Southampton, were in collision with one-another on the busy main road.

Just 20 minutes later, a second call was made to Dorset Police at 9.22am, with reports of another two-vehicle collision, also on Poole Road.

Officers from the police closed the roads at the Corfe Mullen Junction and at Limberlost while emergency services attended the scene.

Firefighters from Dorset Fire and Rescue Service also assisted at the incident and cut the roof off a white Ford Fiesta, registered to a woman from Blandford, after the driver complained of whiplash-type injuries.

The driver of the other vehicle, a red Renault Megane, registered to a female from Blandford, was attended to by paramedics from Dorset Ambulance Service, after complaining of minor chest pains.

South Western Ambulance Service confirmed that a call was made to them at 9.12am and once they arrived, they found two female casualties.

One 18-year-old woman, with suspected head and neck injuries, and a 27-year-old woman, with reported chest injuries, were taken by road ambulance to Poole Hospital.

Both vehicles involved in the collision were recovered and Poole Road was fully cleared by 11.25am.

A Dorset County Council spokesman said: “All the road gritters went out at 7:30pm last night (Jan20) covering the strategic network of Dorset’s busiest roads.

She added: “It was not necessary to salt again this morning, as there was no rain or snow overnight and the salt would have stayed on the surface.

“Drivers are advised to drive carefully following freezing temperatures, as there may still be ice on some roads despite gritting.”
