    Couple die in horrific Dorset car accident

    By David Brown on September 13, 2010

    From the Bournemouth Echo:

    A man and a woman from Poole have died in a collision with a car as they “walked arm-in-arm” along a road in the affluent seaside area of Sandbanks.

    The 53-year-old man and 51-year-old woman were declared dead at the scene of the horrific crash just after 10.30pm on Saturday, after they were reportedly knocked down by a silver Mercedes convertible.

    Another injured woman, also on foot, was rushed to Poole Hospital, but has since been released.

    The road was taped off until noon on Sunday as forensics scoured the area for clues, bringing the area to a standstill.

    Eyewitness Dave Bloomfield, who lives nearby, said:

    “At first I thought it could have been a drum on the television or a thunderstorm.”

    “When I opened the curtains to look out onto the road, the accident had just happened.”

    He added: “There was a body lying in the middle of the road and another on the pavement.

    “And then there was the car, which looked embedded in the wall.”

    Many residents were kept awake by the police helicopter searching the area until the early hours of the morning. Next of kin and the East Dorset coroner have been informed.

    A 33-year-old Poole man has been arrested on suspicion of driving offences and is currently helping police with their enquiries.
