Four people have been taken to hospital after a car was turned on its roof in an accident at Osmington.

The A353 was closed both ways following a two car collision at Osmington,  between the Warmwell roundabout and Chalbury Corner at Preston, at around 2.30pm.

The accident has now been cleared and the road reopened

A spokesperson for South Western Ambulance Service said: "We received a call about the collision at 14:42 and three ambulances attended the scene.

"It is believed that four patients have been taken to Dorset County Hospital with minor injuries."

I wouldn't be very happy if the first I found out about an accident was from a photo in the local newspaper.

We do see our fair share of crashes! I have over the last few months seen 4 cars with 2 driver side tyres punctured/bent wheels as they drive past the pedestrian crossing islands ( and hit the kerbs) on Portland Beach Rd, obviously staring across Portland harbour when they should be watching where they are going.

"A silver Ford Mondeo estate" - Don't think so - the car in the picture is a Volvo with what suspiciously looks like blue lights in the grille. Unmarked plod methinks.

Cars do not, go out of control. They are driven to fast for the road conditions, or they are driven into things. Unless someone else drove into this car, the driver is to blame, nobody else.
