Two injured after car collides into Weymouth bar

POLICE are appealing for witnesses following a collision on The Esplanade in Weymouth on Friday (June 28) where a grey Mercedes B200 collided with the outside terrace area at The Nook bar.

Two pedestrians – a woman aged in her 20s and a man aged in his 40s – sustained serious injuries during the incident and were taken to hospital for treatment.

Their injuries are not life-threatening and they have since been discharged.

The elderly male driver of the car did not sustain any serious injuries. The Esplanade was closed to allow emergency services to safely deal with the incident.
Dorset Police Constable Steve Eastwood, of the traffic unit, said: “Our enquires are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of the collision.
“The seafront would have been busy at this time of day and I am keen to speak to anyone who saw what happened and has not already spoken to police.
“Also, if you were travelling in the area and have a dashcam fitted to your vehicle, I would ask you to please check your footage for anything of relevance.
“I would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while the area was cordoned off. This was to allow for the safety of the public and for a thorough examination of the scene to be carried out.”
