A tipper lorry, a silver Mitsubishi L200 and a black Range Rover were involved in a collision on the A35 on Sugar Hill close to Bere Regis shortly after 7.25am on Friday 16 April.
The driver of the Mitsubishi – a man in his 70s from the Poole area – sustained serious injuries and was taken to Southampton General Hospital by air ambulance. His condition remains serious, but stable.
The driver of the lorry – a man in his 50s, also from the Poole area – was uninjured.

“I would urge any witnesses to the incident itself, or the manner of driving of the vehicles involved prior to it, who have not spoken to police yet to please come forward.
