Two women taken to hospital and traffic at standstill on A338 Spur Road after collision

TWO women were rushed to hospital this afternoon following a crash on the Wessex Way.

A 16-year-old girl and a 57-year-old woman, both believed to be from the Ringwood area, were taken to Poole Hospital following the single-vehicle collision at around 3pm.

One suffered serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.

Earlier this afternoon, traffic was at a standstill along the main road, and one lane was closed northbound.

However, although there are holds ups between the Blackwater junction and the Ashley Heath Interchange, both lanes have now reopened.

A spokesperson from Dorset Police said: "Two women were travelling northbound on the A338 when their Ford KA left the road and ended up in a ditch.

"Both occupants were taken to Poole Hospital."

She said one lane of the carriageway was closed to allow the emergency services to assist.

That's the A338 Bournemouth to Ringwood Spur Road, not Wessex Way in Bournemouth. Get your facts right.
Does Toby Whatshisname, the totally anonymous Editor, proof read any of these reports? Or is he still hiding in Weymouth not giving a monkeys about what this rag publishes?

So it could be a blow out. Could you handle a front tyre exploding at 70mph?

Stupid comment. I suppose you think men drivers don't end up in ditches?

Women should not be driving 70mph! :-)

I'm afraid criticising the dire editing and standard of 'journalism' on this paper is just water off a duck's back. Ah, perhaps that's a clue as to who they employ these days. At least monkeys with typewriters would in time produce the complete works of Shakespeare.

Well said Old Colonial. I just expect it in the DE these days. It comes as no surprise. The journalists are not very good at local geography either. Some reports are definitely in need of a bit of attention.

Mind you, I had my wrist slapped my a reader. I spelt surprise with a 'z'. I will never forget now.

and for the bloke that was driving at over 120mph on sunday morning down this road, that I gobbed off too (because we were stuck in traffic due to a minor accident), this is exactly what happens. If you're reading this, you drive like a complete idiot and put other peoples lives at risk.

Agreed some of these articles have amateur mistakes and miss detail. What does the Editor actually do?
