A ROAD in north Dorset has reopened following a three vehicle collision.

Emergency services were called to the scene this morning, which was between the A350 and Tarrant Hinton, close to Pimperne.

The A354 was shut between Blandford and Tarrant Hinton whilst recovery work was carried out.

A spokesman for Dorset Police said officers, along with Dorset Fire and Rescue Service and ambulance personnel, were called at 10.15am.

The crash involved a red Nissan Micra, registered to a Blandford woman, and a Mercedes articulated lorry, registered to a company from Shrewsbury.

The third vehicle involved was a green Ford Mondeo, registered to a man from Salisbury.

The spokesman added that it was not thought that the woman's injuries were serious or life-threatening, but fire crews were called to cut her free from the car.

After being removed from her vehicle, the woman was taken to Salisbury District Hospital.

The road reopened at around 12.20pm.
