Appeal for witnesses following collision in Winterhill

    Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a collision in Milton Keynes.

    Shortly after 3pm on Tuesday (18/10) a silver Vauxhall Astra was in collision with a silver Vauxhall Insignia on the V6 Grafton Street at the junction with Grampian Gate, Winterhill.

    The driver of the Vauxhall Astra, a man, and a woman, who was a passenger in the same vehicle both aged in their nineties, were released from their vehicle by fire crews and sustained serious injuries. They were taken to Milton Keynes General Hospital by South Central Ambulance Service where the man remains. The woman is currently at the John Radcliffe Hospital. The driver of the Insignia, a man in his thirties, was taken to Milton Keynes General Hospital with minor injuries and was discharged on the same day.

    Officers from the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing are investigating the circumstances and the Forensic Collision Investigation Unit attended and examined the scene.

    Investigating officer PC Neil Stephenson, from Roads Policing based at Milton Keynes, said: “I would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding as the V6 Grafton Street remained closed for nearly three hours to allow the investigation to take place.

    “I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or who may have seen either vehicle prior to the collision or any parked vehicles on the slip prior to the collision.”

    Anyone with any information about the incident should contact the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 quoting URN 907 18/10.

    If you do not want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
