Cyclist suffers serious injuries following collision in East Dorset

A collision involving a cyclist and a lorry near Ashley Heath roundabout on the A31 has resulted in the cyclist, a man aged in his 30s from Wiltshire, being taken to Southampton General Hospital with possible life-changing injuries.

The collision happened around 8am on Friday 14 August. Officers attended, along with the ambulance and fire services.

The driver of the lorry was uninjured.

The road was closed between Ringwood and the junction with the A338 to allow emergency services to deal with the incident. It was reopened at around 11am.

Inspector Joe Pardey, of the traffic unit, said, “I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision and has not already spoken to police to please get in touch.

“I am also keen to hear from any motorists who were travelling on the A31 and may have captured anything relevant on dashcam footage.

“Finally, I would like to thank the public for their patience while the road closures were in place. These were absolutely necessary to allow for the safety of officers while dealing with the collision, treatment to be given to the injured person and an examination of the scene to be carried out.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting incident number 14:123. Alternatively, or alternatively to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at or call freephone 0800 555 111.
