A35 crash: Police slam 'rubbernecking' drivers that led to two further collisions

A serious road traffic collision in Poole on Creekmoor Lane this morning led to a road closure on Upton road on the A35, both drivers involved sustained injuries. The driver of a Volvo involved sustained minor injuries and the driver of a Ford Fiesta sustained serious but not life-threatening injuries.

The chaos of the initial incident and those not paying attention to the road led to two further collisions as people have been “rubberbecking” at emergency services on scene. In a statement, Police told drivers to “pay attention to the road ahead.”

In an update from Dorset Police on their Facebook page they said: “Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance attended the scene and one casualty went to Poole Hospital by land ambulance. The driver of a Volvo involved sustained minor injuries and the driver of a Ford Fiesta sustained serious but not life-threatening injuries.

“Recovery en-route. Whilst at the scene there were two further collisions on the A350 Upton by-pass caused by people braking unnecessarily due to rubbernecking at all the emergency services dealing with the first collision.

“Pay attention to the road ahead.”

Traffic monitoring system Inrix first flagged the incident at 8.04am and added Longmeadow Lane was closed on approach to Upton Road. Drivers in the area should expect delays, buses have also been diverted.
