Paramedic cut free in Dorset ambulance crash

A paramedic had to be cut free when the ambulance he was driving collided with a car in Dorset.

The emergency vehicle was involved in the crash with a MG Rover near the Shah Persia pub in Longfleet Road, Poole, just after 2000 GMT on Tuesday.

The 41-year-old male paramedic had a minor back injury and was cut free by firefighters. He was taken to hospital along with the 19-year-old MG driver.

The MG driver was also said to have slight injuries.

Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

The road was closed for an hour-and-a-half while investigations were carried out.
