Dorset mum critically injured in caravan crash dies
A WOMAN who was critically injured in a bank holiday horror crash has died.
The 48-year-old Poole woman was a passenger in a Land Rover Discovery along with her husband and young son which overturned on the road between Bridport and Dorchester at 1.05pm on Saturday.
The Land Rover, which was towing a caravan, lost control and left the carriageway causing the vehicle to role several times.
Her family have been informed and an inquest will be held at a later date.
The woman suffered life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital by air ambulance.
Her 52-year-old husband, who was driving, suffered minor injuries and was taken, along with their son, 11, to Dorset County Hospital in Dorchester.
The youngster escaped injury in the single vehicle crash, which saw the vehicle roll several times after losing control.
Officers are renewing their appeal for witnesses to come forward.
A spokesman for Dorset Police said: “One of the passengers, a 48-year-old woman from the Poole area, who had suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to Southampton General Hospital sadly died this morning.
“Officers are renewing their appeal for witnesses to the collision or the manner of driving of the vehicle prior to the collision to contact PC Gareth Blaken of Weymouth Traffic on 101 quoting incident number 24:277.”
