A MUM has been killed and her eight-year-old daughter is fighting for her life following a horror car crash.
The woman, 28, was driving a silver Vauxhall Astra when it left a dual carriageway and plunged into a ditch on the A35 Upton Bypass in Poole, Dorset.
She was pronounced dead at the scene following the incident at 8.50pm yesterday.
The girl was airlifted to Southampton General Hosptial and is in a ‘critical’ condition.
No other vehicles were involved in the collision.
Sergeant Sarah Jones, from Dorset Police, said: “Our thoughts are with their family at this very difficult time.
“We are carrying out a full and thorough investigation into this collision and I am keen to hear from anyone who was travelling along this stretch of the dual carriageway at the relevant time and witnessed the collision or the Astra being driven immediately before.
“I would also urge any motorists with dashcams fitted in their vehicles to please check their systems to see if they have any footage that may be relevant to my investigation.”
