Dorset Police are trying to piece together what happened to a man who died in a car crash near Wareham just 2 days after Christmas.

The incident, in which an Audi A6 collided with a tree, occurred at around 7:30pm last Thursday evening (27th December), on the B3070 near the Holme Lane junction.

The 31 year old driver sustained fatal injuries and was found dead at the scene.

Traffic Officers are trying to find out how the car was being driven prior to the fatal accident. If you can help they want to hear from you on 101.

Police Constable Mark Palmer, from the Dorset Police Traffic Unit, said: "I am appealing for witnesses and ask that they contact police as soon as possible.

"In particular I am keen to speak to anyone who may have information on the manner of driving of the Audi prior to the collision."

The deceased man's next of kin has been informed and formal identification has yet to take place.
