POLICE dealt with three crashes in one shift as they carried out road patrols in Poole.

A motorbike collided with a vehicle head-on as it travelled the wrong way down a one-way section of West Quay Road.

Two bus passengers needed hospital treatment for minor injuries after a bus collided with a car in Ringwood Road.

And a minor collision in Dorchester Road, Upton, escalated into a road rage incident after two vehicles clipped wing mirrors.

"Both were blaming each other, everyone needed to calm down" said a police spokesman.

All the crashes took place on Friday February 26.

The same officers also dealt with speeding and no insurance offences in Wareham and Swanage and also issued a ticket to a driver parked dangerously on the George roundabout in Poole as they returned to the station. The driver will have to pay £100 and will also have three penalty points.
