Serious injury collision - Buckingham
Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a serious injury collision in Buckingham on Tuesday (5/9).
At around 8.45am a silver Ford Fiesta was involved in a collision with a pedestrian and market stalls in Market Hill.
The pedestrian, an 85-year-old woman, suffered serious injuries and was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital, where she remains in a critical condition.
The driver of the Ford Fiesta, a 70-year-old woman, sustained minor injuries and was taken to Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
Road closures were put in place in Market Hill, Moreton Road and the High Street to allow emergency service staff to safely carry out their investigation and to allow for repair of the significant damage which had been caused.
Sergeant Daniel Collett, of the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing based at Milton Keynes, said: “The circumstances of how the driver came to lose control are being investigated but I would like to reassure the community they are not related to terrorism.
“I fully understand the concerns and confusion given the current climate and would like to thank the public, traders, business owners and the council for their patience and understanding whilst we carried out our investigation.”
Anyone who witnessed the incident and who has not already spoken to police should call the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 quoting URN 284 5/9.
