A FOUR vehicle crash partially blocked the A35 between Winterbourne Abbas and Monkeys Jump roundabout last night.

Police arrived on the scene after receiving a call at 4.19pm yesterday afternoon.

A grey Volvo, a red peugeot estate, a white Citeron Belingo van and a black BMW estate were involved in the accident.

Police called an ambulance to the scene to treat patients for shock but it is thought there are no serious injuries. 

One of two lanes on the A35 heading east, towards Monkeys Jump roundabout from Morn Gate Holiday Park, was blocked.

I have lost count of the number of accidents that have occured lately on this stretch of road. I cannot believe that they were all down to careless driving. Is there a problem with the road layout, or is there some other problem. Instead of sitting back and congratulating themselves on their successes in Weymouth and at Canford Bottom, maybe DCC Highways should be investigating with the help of Dorset police whether there is a common factor invloved which can be removed.

There is nothing wrong with roads just idiots using them this accident was down to pouring rain and poor visabilty plus the fact people think they can drive at the same speeds in the wet which they cant as breaking distances etc are different in wet weather... maybe they should all re sit there test and do a theory exam to show the have adequate knowledge of the highway code.

Quite right. Shock can be life threatening. Unfortunately the word is frequently used wrongly, e.g. when surprised would be more correct.

As whatever66 said,most of the accidents around this area are people driving too close and too aggressively.I live just off the A35, and regularly have people in cars harassing me as I stick to the 30mph in Winterbourne Abbas, and then negotiating the turn into my road. While I'm at it, some of those who were sent off the A35 on Thursday drove round the lanes of the Bride Valley as if they were on a race track, that is until there was another crash,this time in the valley !!!! Going nowhere fast

So what kind of shock was it? Neurogenic, Cardiogenic, Hypovolaemic, Toxic, Anaphylactic?? Hhmm, neither, I would guess..
They suffered 'a shock' which is certainly not life threatening.

I did a first aid course. Amazing what you learn!
