Road traffic collision in Weymouth involving a bus and a horse – witness appeal

Officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to come forward following a fail-to-stop road traffic collision in Weymouth.

At around 3pm on Saturday 8 May 2021 a collision occurred on Dorchester Road, near to the junction with Lorton Lane, involving a white Volvo single decker bus and a horse.

It is reported that the bus did not stop at the scene, but following enquiries it has been identified.

The horse has sustained injuries and is receiving medical treatment. The horse rider – a local woman aged in her 20s – sustained bruising.

Police Constable Anne-Marie Lee, of Weymouth police, said: “This incident has understandably left the horse rider feeling very shaken and I am carrying out enquiries to establish the full circumstances of what happened.

“I would ask any motorists who were travelling in the area around the time of the collision to please check their dashcams for any relevant footage.

“I understand a number of people stopped to help the horse rider and I would ask them to please get in touch as they may have important information to assist my enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55210072360. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or call Freephone 0800 555 111.
