A PENSIONER suffered minor injuries this morning after his car overturned on a busy Poole road.

Fernside Road was closed for around two hours after a three-vehicle collision took place at 8.40am.

A silver Rav 4 driven by a 36-year-old woman from Poole, a black Nissan Trail driven by a 32-year-old man from Poole and a silver Toyota Yaris driven by an 88-year-old man from Poole were involved.

During the crash, the Yaris overturned, ending up on its roof.

The elderly man sustained minor injuries, but did not need to be taken to hospital.

No further injuries were reported in the crash, which took place close to the New Inn pub.

The road was closed at the junctions of Pound Lane and Wimborne Road until around 9.35am.

No one has been arrested, and enquiries are continuing.
