A man has died in a crash involving three cars in Wool.

It happened on the A352 between the Woolbridge Roundabout and Wool train station at 5.35pm yesterday. Four other people were injured.

Dorset Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with relevant dashcam to come forward as they investigate the fatal road traffic collision.

The collision involved a black Land Rover Defender towing a caravan, a grey Hyundai Tucson and a silver Ford Fiesta.

Police attended, along with the ambulance service and fire service, and a number of casualties were treated for injuries.

A man aged in his 30s and from London was very sadly pronounced dead at the scene. His family has been informed.

Police said the man who died was a passenger in the Ford Fiesta.

The Land Rover is registered to a Poole man, the Hyundai to a Poole man and the Fiesta to a woman from Surrey.

Four other people were taken to Poole Hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing.

Road closures were put in place to allow the emergency services to respond to the incident and for an examination of the scene to take place.

Sergeant Rhys Griffiths, of the traffic unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the family of the man who sadly died at this difficult time and we are carrying out a full investigation to establish the circumstances of this collision.

“I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision, or the manner of driving of any of the vehicles involved prior to it, to please contact us. I would also like to hear from anyone who may have relevant dashcam footage.

“Finally, I would like to thank members of the public for their patience and understanding during the road closures. These are absolutely necessary to enable the emergency services to deal with the incident and for a detailed examination of the scene to be carried out.”
