One dead and two badly hurt in A35 crash

A man has died in a crash involving two vehicles on the A35 in Dorset.

Police said a grey Citroen Xsara Picasso and a blue Volkswagen Tiguan were involved in the crash near Morden Park Corner at 13:45 GMT on Friday.

The 73-year-old driver of the Citroen was pronounced dead at the scene. A 71-year-old woman who was a passenger in the car sustained serious injuries.

One person in the Volkswagen was seriously injured and another was treated for minor injuries.

Police have appealed for witnesses who may have seen the collision or "the manner of driving" of either of the two cars beforehand.

The road was closed in both directions throughout the afternoon and evening but has since reopened.
