Woman Breaks Ankle In Bridport Crash
Police in Bridport are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a road traffic collision near the town.
The incident, in which a white Peugeot Partner van collided with a hedge, happened at Broadoak, just past Dunster, at around 1..40pm on Saturday 26 November 2011.
The driver of the van, a 29-year-old woman from Chard, sustained a broken ankle as a result of the collision and was treated at Dorset County Hospital. The vehicle sustained front end damage.
