A car containing a pregnant woman was forced off the road after a fail to stop accident on the A354.

Dorset Police say it happened around 12.40pm on Saturday between Milborne St Andrew and Puddletown.

A grey sports car overtook the red Peugeot 306, driving into the path of an oncoming car.

The Peugeot had to swerve, left the road, went through a hedge and ended up in a field.

Police Constable James Prowse, of Dorchester police, said: "The couple in the Peugeot were extremely lucky to walk away from this incident and have been left deeply shocked.

"I am keen to speak with anyone who may have seen the collision.

"I am appealing for any witnesses and the driver of the vehicle that may have been faced with this grey sports car on their side of the road to come forward.

"I also urge the driver of the grey sports car, who would have been aware of the fate of the Peugeot, to come forward. We do have witnesses and lines of enquiry so I am confident the vehicle and driver will be traced."

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 7:225. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
