TWO boys have been arrested in connection with a mini motorbike collision that left a teenager fighting for life.

A 16-year-old boy was airlifted to hospital in a life-threatening condition after the crash, which involved a pit bike colliding with metal railings.

When officers arrived at the scene, at the recreation ground between Poole Rugby Football Club and the Turlin Moor estate, Blandford Road, Hamworthy, the mini-motorbike had been removed.

Now investigators have renewed their appeal for witnesses.

Sergeant Rhys Griffiths, of the traffic unit, said: “Our thoughts remain with the injured boy and his family at this time.

"Enquiries are continuing and I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision, or has captured all of part of it on home CCTV, to please get in touch.”

Emergency services were called to the collision around 10.45pm on Monday, October 19.

The pit bike was recovered by police the following afternoon.

Meanwhile, two local boys, aged 13 and 16, have been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice and are assisting officers with their enquiries.
