Preliminary investigation has determined one vehicle crossed the centre line and collided with the other vehicle. One driver, a 70-year-old man from Blandford, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The other driver, a 56-year-old woman from Bedford, was transported to hospital with minor injuries. There were no passengers in either vehicle.
