EARLY morning traffic was delayed for 45 minutes after a motorbike collided with a broken down car on the Wessex Way this morning.

The rider of the silver Honda 125, believed to be a man from Christchurch, suffered minor injuries and was taken to Poole Hospital by ambulance.

No one was hurt in the other vehicle, a silver Vauxhall Corsa, registered to a woman from Christchurch.

Emergency services were called to the westbound carriageway, between St Paul’s and Richmond Hill roundabouts, at 7.25am.

One lane was blocked, causing traffic delays, until the vehicles were recovered and the road fully opened at 8.15am.

Perhaps the failed vehicle was not full off the carriageway, and was obscured by traffic? One thing is for sure, like all the other accident reports on this site, we will never know what any investigation may find, as the Ohec never seems to report such things because the headlines are clearly not catchy enough....

I saw the car from the opposite carriageway about 10 minutes before the accident. It wasn't off the carriageway but unless the motorcyclist was blind or had brake failure it's hard to see how he ploughed into the back of the car?

Undertaking by the careless and selfish motorbike rider, but no doubt it will be the fault of the broken down car driver.

Yep, we drivers seem to be in the wrong regardless of circumstances. My car was parked overnight in my parking place - yikes!

I saw the broken down vehicle about 15 minutes before this happened, to be fair to the motorcyclist, there was a lot of glare from the sun so you couldn't really see the cars hazard lights until you were very close.

Let's just assume the motorcyclist was being careless because as the most likely group of motorists to suffer serious injuries in an accident, we all go around with our eyes shut expecting everyone else to get out of the way.....

Hazard lights or not, the car wasn't moving, even a blind man would have noticed that.

Taking a look at the picture it's clear to see she couldn't pull off the road where she broke down as she's right by the crash barrier, there's no hard shoulder.

I went past the car seconds before the accident and I saw the accident in my rear mirror and was thinking there will be the usual chaos if not cleared quickly . Speed was not an issue, 2 lanes could squeeze past the car and my guess is that the car on the inside lane signalled to go right to avoid the parked car and the motor cyclist maybe thought he would be able to get up the slip road faster but failed to see the parked car .
Only the motor cyclist will know what he / she was going to do but was one lucky person to have survived with just minor injuries as I thought they would be a lot more serious.
