A motorcyclist in his 20s died in a collision on Dorset Way in Poole yesterday 15 March, and police are hoping witnesses will come forward.
The accident happened just after 9pm between the Tower Park roundabout and the Oakdale Road slip road and very sadly the man, who was riding a white Honda motorcycle, died at the scene.
His next of kin has been informed and the coroner notified.
The road was closed between the Fleetsbridge and Tower Park roundabouts to allow collision investigators to examine the scene safely.
Police Sergeant Mark Scammell, of the traffic unit, said, “Our thoughts are with this young man’s family and friends at this very difficult time.
“We are investigating the circumstances surrounding this collision and I would appeal to anyone who was travelling along Dorset Way at the time of the collision, or immediately prior to it, and saw the motorcycle involved to please contact Dorset Police.
“I am particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have captured the motorcycle or the incident on dashcam.
“Finally, I would like to thank motorists for their patience and understanding during the road closure. This was entirely necessary to allow emergency services to deal with the incident and for collision examiners to carry out their investigations.”
