A person commenting on the Facebook post asked if anyone had been seriously injured in the crash. The fire crew from Swanage confirmed the driver walked away without “much injury”.
The Facebook post said: “Two incidents today. This morning one appliance was mobilised to alarms and then this afternoon one appliance from Swanage and one from Poole were mobilised to a RTC (road traffic collision) where a car had gone off the road.
