Cyclist fights for life after crash in Poole
A CYCLIST is fighting for his life following a crash which has blocked the busy A3049 Dorset Way in Poole.
The cyclist, a Poole man in his 30s, was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital with "serious, life-threatening injuries" following the collision with a black Audi A1 car on the Mannings Heath Roundabout, at around 6pm on Thursday.
One side of Dorset Way was shut from Mannings Heath roundabout towards the Old Wareham Road and Mannings Heath Road partially blocked from Tesco Tower Park while emergency services attended the scene.
The driver of the Audi, a Poole woman, has been helping police with their enquiries.
Sergeant Lee Savage, from the Dorset Police traffic unit, wants any witnesses who saw the Audi or the bright blue drop handlebar road bike before or during the crash to contact him.
He said: “At 6.03pm police were called to a report of a collision involving a car and a pedal cycle at Mannings Heath Road.
“Upon arrival we found a man in his 30s had sustained serious life threatening injuries due to the collision.”
