Motorbike Hits Four Pedestrians In Poole

Police in Poole are investigating after a motorbike crashed into four pedestrians in the Oakdale area of the town.

It happened at around 4.20pm on Wednesday 26th June near the Hungerhill roundabout on the A350.

A white Talbot camper van stopped to let four pedestrians cross the road, when a black Kawasaki ZX10 motorcycle collided with them, knocking them all to the ground.

The rider, a 29-year-old Bournemouth man suffered slight injuries.

One of the pedestrians, a 45-year-old Wareham woman was taken to hospital with a minor head injury.

The other three, a 32-year-old man from Winterbourne Abbas, and two young girls aged 12 and 6 all suffered minor cuts and grazes.

Police Constable James Howes, of the Poole Traffic Unit, said:

“This collision happened at a busy time of the day and it is extremely lucky nobody was seriously injured.

“This has been a very traumatic experience for the victims, especially given that two are very young.

“I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this collision take place to contact Dorset Police in confidence.

“I would also urge anyone who may have information about the manner of driving by the rider prior to the collision to call the non-emergency number 101.”

No arrests have been made.
