Appeal for witnesses following crash near Weymouth

Officers investigating a collision near Weymouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward.

Dorset Police was made aware of the incident on the B3157 near Bagwell Farm Touring Park at 10.44am this morning. A white Ford Transit had collided with a blue Toyota Aygo. The occupants of the car were uninjured.

“It appears that the driver of the van, a 50-year-old local man, had a medical episode leading up to the collision. Following enquiries, I believe that the same vehicle was in a collision with a maroon coloured car on the Granby Industrial Estate a little while earlier. This car was occupied by two men and I am appealing for those two witnesses to come forward. I would like to stress that they are not in any kind of trouble. They might simply be able to assist with the investigation surrounding the circumstances of these two collisions. Also, I am appealing for anyone who witnessed either of the two collisions to contact police as soon as possible.”
