Man seriously injured in police car crash in Dorset

A 28-year-old man from Yeovil has been seriously injured after being hit by a police car. It happened on Saturday evening (23 August) on the B3146 between Dorchester and Sherborne.

Dorset Police say one of their vehicles was in pursuit of a black Peugeot GTI which hit a road sign. The driver got out and then collided with the police car.

The man was taken to Dorset County Hospital with a seriously injured arm. He was arrested for driving offences.

I am appealing for witnesses to the collision to come forward and contact police.

I would also like to hear from anyone who witnessed the manner of driving of either vehicle leading up to the collision.
