Arrest After Man Killed Riding Child's Scooter
Police have made an arrest after a Bournemouth man was killed in a crash on the A35 Upton Bypass.
Dorset Police say the 23-year-old is thought to have been riding a child's micro scooter when he was hit by a vehicle in the early hours of Saturday morning (14 September). The vehicle didn't stop.
The man's body and the scooter were found nearby on Sunday 15 September.
A 26-year-old man from Blandford has now been arrested and is being questioned.
A police spokesperson said:
“At approximately 2.15pm on Sunday 15 September, police were alerted to a child’s micro scooter on the nearside verge of the A35 Upton Bypass, between the A350 flyover and Holes Bay Road.
“A search was carried out and the body of a 23-year-old Bournemouth man was located in undergrowth nearby. It is believed that the man was riding the micro scooter along the Upton Bypass early on Saturday morning and was struck by a vehicle."
Anyone who thinks they may have been involved in a collision on the Upton Bypass is asked to contact police as soon as possible. Anyone who may have witnessed who may have seen the man riding a micro scooter should call the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 349 of the 15th.
The busy road's being made two lanes in both directions between Segensworth and Titchfield - it's due to take 18 months.
