Dorset Police Urge Driver to Come Forward Following Fatal A31 Collision

Dorset Police Car 2

Published at 2:09pm 31st March 2014.

Police investigating a fatal crash on the A31 a week ago - say they need to speak to the driver of a small green hatchback.

A man died and his wife and daughter were badly hurt when a car collided head on with their Skoda after overtaking a lorry.

It happened between Winterbourne Zelston and Bere Regis just before 6 last Monday (24th March) evening and police reckon the people in a green hatchback may have seen what happened.

A 28 year old man from Taunton has been bailed after being arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

Police Sergeant Jon Wren, of Dorset Police's Traffic Unit, said "During the early stages of the Subaru's overtake it appears that a small green hatch back car may have been forced to take avoiding action. We would very much like to hear from the driver or passengers from this car. They are not implicated in the collision but may be important witnesses to our investigation. I would urge them to get in contact with police as soon as possible.

"Any witnesses that have not already spoken to the police should call the non-emergency number 101 and ask for PC 1294 Chris Smith from the Poole Traffic Unit."
