A man from Walsall has been arrested after failing to stop for police and subsequently being involved in an accident on the Oxford Road in Adderbury on Tuesday night.   A passenger in the vehicle sustained life threatening injuries in the crash.

At just before 11pm on Tuesday (15th September) a dark blue Vauxhall Corsa, failed to stop for officers in Banbury town centre.   The vehicle joined the A4260 road at speed, heading out of Banbury in the direction of Oxford.    In Adderbury as it approached the junction with the B4100, Aynho Road, it overtook another vehicle on the road.   However it lost control and then collided with a stone wall on the offside of the road before coming to a stop.

The driver, a 22-year-old man, was taken to hospital for treatment, then later released. He was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and released under investigation.

A passenger in the vehicle, a man aged in his fifties, sustained life threatening injuries and remains in hospital. A second passenger, a woman in her forties, sustained minor injuries and was taken to hospital, but has since been discharged.
