Two people lost their lives in collisions on roads in Dorset last weekend.
The first was near Corfe Castle and the second in Bournemouth.
At 8.18pm on Saturday 24 July a black Audi A5 coupé left the road and landed in a field along the B3069 between Kingston and the turn-off to Worth Matravers.
A local man in his 20s died at the scene and the front seat passenger, also a local man in his 20s, sustained minor injuries.
Police Constable Dave Coterill, of the traffic unit, said: “My thoughts are with the family and friends of the young man who tragically died.
“We are carrying out a thorough investigation into the circumstances of the collision.
“I urge anyone who witnessed the incident or the manner of driving leading up to it to please come forward.
“Also, I would like to hear from anyone who may have captured anything of relevance on dashcam to please get in touch.”
The second collision happened on the A338 northbound between the Avon Causeway and Ashley Heath at 6.22am on Sunday 25 July. A white petrol tanker collided with a male pedestrian.
Sadly, the pedestrian – a man in his 30s – was pronounced dead at the scene. The lorry driver was uninjured.
Police Sergeant Lee Savage, of the traffic unit, said: “I am particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw a white Vauxhall Insignia parked in a layby on this stretch of road or a person in or around the vehicle.
