A DRIVER was taken to hospital after his van overturned.

Officers were called out at just after 1pm following the collision on Wincombe Lane in Shaftesbury.

Police said a white Citroen Berlingo panel van overturned after it collided with a green BMW. A black Peugeot parked nearby was also damaged when the van slid into it.

The road was partially blocked as emergency services dealt with the overturned vehicle and an ambulance crew were at the scene to deal with potential injuries. The driver was taken to hospital with a minor head injury.

North Dorset Police said: “Fortunately only one person received minor injuries. A prudent time to remind all on the dangers of speed and to look, especially at junctions.”
