Bournemouth crash cyclist 'stable'
A WOMAN who suffered serious head injuries in a collision with a car in Bournemouth is no longer in a life-threatening condition, police said yesterday.
The 47-year-old Bournemouth woman, who was rushed to hospital on Wednesday evening after the collision with a Peugeot 207 being driven by a 67-year-old Poole man, in Princess Road, Westbourne , was described by police as being in a “serious but stable” condition yesterday.
Officers are continuing their investigation into what happened.
Emergency services were called to the junction of Princess Road and Prince of Wales Road at 7.25pm on Wednesday.
Police closed the road for several hours after the collision while investigators examined the scene.
Residents described hearing the accident and told the Daily Echo that the junction was a black spot for accidents and near-misses.
Police are also still looking for a car driver who failed to stop after a collision with a cyclist at East Stoke, near Wareham, early on Thursday morning.
They were called to the A352 at 6.10am after the local man in his 30s, who was travelling towards Wareham, received serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.
No-one has yet come forward, police said yesterday, and anyone with information is urged to contact police.
Those with information on either collision should call Dorset Police on 101, or through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
