A man in his 20's has died after a crash involving two cars and a lorry near Dorchester.
Dorset Police received a report at 5.42am yesterday (15 January) of a collision at Long Ash Lane on the A37 involving a black Honda Civic, a grey Volvo XC90 and a MAN heavy goods vehicle.
Emergency services attended and very sadly, the driver of the Honda – a local man aged in his 20s – was pronounced dead at the scene. His family has been informed.
The driver of the Volvo – a man aged in his 50s from Somerset – was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Road closures were put in place to allow the emergency services to respond to the incident and for an examination of the scene to be carried out.
Sergeant Richard Stroud, of the Roads Policing Team, said: “Our thoughts are very much with the family of the man who sadly died in this collision at what must be an extremely difficult time for them.
“It is important that we establish the full circumstances of what happened and I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision, or the manner of driving of the vehicles involved prior to it, to please contact us.
“I would also like to hear from any motorists who were in the area and captured any relevant dashcam footage.
“Finally, I appreciate this collision led to the closure of a major road for some time, but this was absolutely necessary to enable the emergency services to safely respond to the incident and for a thorough examination of the scene to be conducted.”
