Four people, including a baby boy have been injured in a car crash just outside Thame.

Three fire crews were called to Thame Park Road between Thame and Postcombe at 1pm on Wednesday January 6.

Watch manager Andy Ford said: “On arrival we found four people who had been injured in the collision, these were immediately treat by fire and rescue service personnel.

“The injuries sustained could have been far worse if the occupants had not been wearing their seat belts, one of whom was an 18 month baby boy who was properly secured in his car seat which undoubtedly saved him from serious injury.

“We have attended a number of road traffic collisions in the area this year already.

“I would urge drivers to slow down and take the road conditions into account at this time of year, especially now the weather is turning colder and roads maybe icy in places.”

Firefighters provided first aid to the injured occupants of the car and then made the damaged vehicles safe.

The ambulance service also attended the scene and took the injured to hospital.

Thames Valley Police is now investigating the cause of the crash.
