90 Year Old Seriously Injured in Dorchester Collision


2:08pm 22nd July 2013

An elderly woman has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after she was involved in a collision with a car trailer in Dorchester.

Dorset Police say the woman, in her 90's, was using a pedestrian crossing at Top o' Town roundabout when the incident happened this lunchtime at around 11:30am (Monday 22nd July).

She was treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to Dorset County Hospital - it's not known whether her injuries are life threatening.

The white trailer was being pulled by a black Honda car.

From the scene our reporter Abby Newbery said Police were carrying out a thorough investigation: "Police are doing a pretty in depth analysis of the trailer, taking videos and photos. The car has stopped just after the crossing leaving the trailer partially over the lines."
