He was taken to Poole Hospital suffering potentially life changing foot injuries, as well as possible pelvic and spinal injuries.

The incident closed part of the road for around an hour. Police are still appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Anyone with information should contact PC Tim Brehmer 2133 on 101.
