Police are stepping up patrols in the Haddenham area following a serious car crash earlier this week.

At about 5.05pm on Tuesday a black Toyota RAV4 was in collision with a black Peugeot 307 at the crossroads of Standbridge Road junction with Woodways causing extensive damage to both cars.

Three occupants of the Toyota were extracted from their vehicle by the fire brigade and taken to Stoke Mandeville Hospital with chest and leg pains.

The three occupants of the Peugeot were also taken to Stoke Mandeville for their injuries which were not life threatening.

Air Ambulance attended together with two Bucks fire engines, four ambulances and two roads policing units to assist the injured persons and conduct a full investigation.

Roads policing officer PC Liz Johnson said: “We urge frequent road users through Haddenham to take extra care when travelling through the village and to note that we will be conducting road safety checks in the near future.”

If you have any information, particularly if you saw the collision or the events leading up to it, please call PC Johnson via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
