Woman dies after collision in Wareham

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a woman died following a three-vehicle collision in Wareham.

The crash happened on Thursday, June 28, at around 12.30pm on the A352 Worgret Hill at the junction with Puddletown Road.

Police believed no one was seriously hurt in the collision, but a 74-year-old woman from Cornwall, who was a passenger in one of the cars involved, later died after being admitted to the Royal Cornwall Hospital.

The cars involved in the crash were a silver Vauxhall Astra, being driven by a 74-year-old woman from Surrey, a blue Nissan X-Trail, being driven by a 74-year-old man from Cornwall and a white heavy goods vehicle being driven by a Yeovil man.

Police constable Andy Gold, of Weymouth Traffic Police, said: "Police are investigating the circumstances of the collision.

"I would ask anyone who has information about this incident, or who witnessed the collision, to call 101."

It is ironic that this accident occurred on the short stretch of this road that isn't subject to 40 or 50 mph limit. It is also the same stretch of this road where there have been numerous accidents over the years.

I think the irony is the number of accidents at his very acute-angled junction, that is subject to National speed limits (single carriageway, 60 MPH). The road was closed for hours last week because of a collision at the same junction. However, with regard to the poor lady who died, no-one has officially said that she died as a result of the collision. She died in Cornwall, some time after the collision. This may have been due to a medical condition and totally unrelated.

My profuse apologies if my post seemed in any way disrespectful. That was on no way intended.
My comment was to record that fact that this has long been an accident black spot yet, when speed restrictions have been applied to the road between Wool and Wareham, they were not on this short stretch of the road where visibility is poor and speeds excessive under the circumstances.
