A ROAD was closed in Poole this morning after a girl on a pedal bike was involved in a collision with a van.

Police and ambulance personnel were called to Broadstone Way after the collision at 8.08am.

A police spokesman said it happened at traffic lights at the junction of Beechbank Avenue and involved a white VW van registered to a Poole woman.

The UK registered left-hand drive vehicle has a smashed windscreen and a dent in the front and is parked up just beyond the crossing. 

A police spokesman said the girl was conscious and breathing and was taken to Poole Hospital. Emergency services have now left the scene.

An ambulance service spokesman said the girl suffered cuts, grazes and bruises.
