A 13-year-old boy is in hospital fighting for his life after suffering head injuries in a hit-and-run crash involving a Mercedes.
The incident, at 2.27pm on Friday, August 21, involved a 13-year-old boy and a grey Mercedes A-Class with police saying it was reported the driver did not stop at the scene, although they have since been located.
The boy was taken to Southampton General Hospital with life-threatening head injuries.
A 28-year-old man from Poole has been arrested on suspicion of driving offences and is helping officers with their enquiries.
Police Sergeant Rhys Griffiths, of the traffic unit, said: “I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision and has not already spoken to us to contact Dorset Police.
“Also, I am keen to hear from anyone who may have relevant dashcam footage or have captured the incident on their mobile phone.
“I would like to thank motorists for their patience while a road closure was in place, which was absolutely necessary to allow for an examination of the scene to be carried out.”
