Poole: Six Year Old Knocked Down On Crossing

Officers investigating a road traffic collision in Poole are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward.

The incident, in which a six-year-old boy using a pelican crossing was in collision with a car that failed to stop, happened at approximately 3.45pm on Thursday 10 July 2014 on Wimborne Road.
 
The boy was with his mother pushing his bicycle across the road on the crossing directly outside the police station, when a green coloured vehicle drove through the red light and collided with the bicycle knocking him to the ground.  He was left shaken but otherwise uninjured. The offending car, which was travelling from the direction of Poole town centre, failed to stop at the scene and continued towards Fleetsbridge.
 
Police Constable Mark Palmer, of Dorset Police’s Traffic Unit, said: “It was fortunate that the boy was not more seriously injured.
 
“I am appealing to the driver of the green car to come forward to help us ascertain exactly what happened.
 
“It is believed that the car is a quite distinctive colour - the mother describes it as ‘bogey’ green so it is possible someone may remember the incident or saw the vehicle in the area at the time.
 
“Witnesses or anyone with information is urged to contact the police as soon as possible.”
