Emergency services were called to reports of a collision involving a red Peugeot 207 and a female pedestrian in Hanham Road, Wimborne, at 8.35am on Sunday, November 21.

Officers attended, along with the ambulance service, and the pedestrian was taken to hospital for treatment and is believed to be in a serious condition with potentially life-changing injuries.

“I would urge any witnesses, or anyone who may have captured anything of relevance on dashcam footage, to please come forward if you have not already spoken to police.

“Finally, I would like to thank members of the public for their patience and understanding during the road closures, which were absolutely necessary to allow the emergency services to deal with the incident and for an examination of the scene to be carried out.”
