89-year-old woman in hospital after crash

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after an elderly woman was seriously injured in a road traffic collision in Oxford yesterday. Police were called to a report that an elderly female pedestrian had been hit by a Toyota Corolla on Banbury Road, Summertown, near Hearns Crescent.

The 89-year-old local woman suffered multiple injuries from the collision, including broken legs and facial fractures. She was taken by ambulance to the John Radcliffe Hospital where she is currently receiving treatment for her injuries.

We would ask if you were in the area at the time and may have seen anything to do with this incident we need to hear from you. While it was already dark when the incident happened, it was also a busy time on a late Saturday afternoon and there would have been lots of people about, who may have seen something.

The male driver of the Toyota was shaken but unharmed. The road was closed for around an hour and a half as officers continued with their investigation. If you can help with any information please contact PC Tony Lee on the non-emergency number 101.
