Man dies in three-vehicle crash on A35 at Bridport – BBC


A man has died in a three-vehicle crash on a stretch of a major road through Dorset.
A HGV lorry, Mercedes Sprinter van and a Volvo V40 collided on the A35 at Bridport shortly after 05:20 BST.
Dorset Police said the van driver, a 20-year-old man from Newton Abbot in Devon, died at the scene. The HGV driver was seriously hurt.
The road was closed in both directions and traffic diverted through Bridport while investigations were carried out.
Police have appealed for witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to come forward.
Sgt Jay Griffen said: "The road closure was in place for a number of hours, and I would like to thank the public for their understanding.
"Closing a main arterial route is not something we take lightly, but it was absolutely necessary to allow emergency services to deal with the incident and recover the large vehicles involved."
