Teenage motorcyclist dies in Poole crash with van
A teenage motorcyclist has died after his bike was involved in a crash with a van.
The red and black Hyosung motorcycle collided with a white Ford Transit panel van on the A31 near Merley, Poole, at about 12:50 BST.
The rider of the motorbike - a 17-year-old boy from Bournemouth - died at the scene. His family has been informed and the coroner notified.
A 48-year-old man from Southampton, who was driving the van, was uninjured.
Police are appealing for witnesses.
Sgt Fern Graham added: "I would also like to hear from anyone who saw the manner of driving or riding of either vehicle before the collision or has a dash cam fitted in their vehicle."
Both lanes of the A31 were closed between the Merley and Canford Bottom roundabouts while investigations were carried out.
