61 year-old man dies in collision

A 61 year-old man from Christchurch has died in a collision.

It happened at 2.12pm on Waterloo Road near to the Shell garage.

A white van, which was travelling from Poole toward Gravel Hill, crossed the central reservation into the opposite carriageway before colliding with a tree. The man died at the scene and his family have been told.

A man who was also travelling in the van sustained a head injury and was taken to Poole Hospital for treatment.

Both carriageways were closed between Cabot Lane and Darbys Corner roundabout. The road was re-opened just after 7pm.
