As reported by the A&T, a 31-year-old man from Southampton was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin were informed and the coroner notified.

Two women, one in her 70s and the other in her 30s, were taken to hospital, with the pensioner in a critical condition and the other having suffered serious injuries.

One of three men arrested near the scene that day has since been charged with causing death by dangerous driving and two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

Yusuf Muzil (22), of Cricklewood in London, will face the charges before Poole magistrates.

The other two, a 28-year-old man from Hendon in London and a 30-year-old man from Hanwell, London, arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, were bailed pending further enquiries.
