At around 1.10pm today, Saturday 7 May 2016, a serious injury collision occurred between a number of motorcycles on the westbound carriageway of the A35 between Yellowham Hill and Puddletown at Dorchester.
Two of the injured – a 16-year-old girl and a 23-year-old man – were taken to Southampton General Hospital. The girl is said to have suffered life-threatening injuries. The man’s condition is believed to be serious but not life-threatening.
Police Sergeant Joe Pardey, of Dorset Police’s Traffic Unit, said: “I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision, or the manner of riding of either of the motorcycles prior to the incident, to please call me on 101.
“The road has been closed for a considerable time and I would like to thank motorists for their patience during these closures which are necessary to allow us to establish how the collision occurred.”
