A woman was injured in a hit and run incident involving a caravan.

The woman, aged in her 20s, was driving a Honda Jazz in the outside lane of the westbound carriageway of the A35 Puddletown bypass near to Troy Town on Wednesday, July 3 at about 10.45pm.

A vehicle towing a caravan undertook her and collided with her car while attempting to move to the outside lane. This caused her car to spin and collide with the central reservation.

The vehicle reportedly stopped a few hundred yards up the road with the hazard warning lights on, but then drove away.

The woman was taken to hospital but only endured minor injuries. Police are appealing for information regarding the incident.

Police Constable Shane Hewitt of Dorchester Police, said: “I would urge the driver involved in this incident to please come forward so we can establish exactly what happened.

“From witnesses at the scene, I believe there were a number of other vehicles travelling along that stretch of road at the time of the collision who may have also witnessed the incident and I would ask them to please contact me.

“Finally, I am also keen to hear from anyone who may have captured the collision on dashcam.”

Anyone with any information should contact Dorset Police on 101 and quote occurrence number 55190101488.
