Three injured in M40 crash near Banbury

Three people have been injured after a four-vehicle crash on the M40 near Banbury.

The collision happened on the southbound side between junctions 11 and 10 at 9.15am yesterday (Tuesday, 15 October).

The vehicles involved were a silver Vauxhall Astra, a white and green DAF tanker, a blue Volkswagen Passat and a green Mercedes Sprinter.

Three men were taken to hospital, and one, the driver of the tanker, remains at the John Radcliffe with a head injury.

He is currently in a stable condition.

Investigating officer PC Dean O’Dell of the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing based at Bicester, said: “This was a serious collision which resulted in the carriageway being blocked for some time as the tanker overturned.

“The driver of the tanker remains in a stable condition, while two others were treated in hospital but have now been discharged.

“Two other people did not suffer any injuries.

“I am appealing to anybody that was on the M40 and witnessed this collision to contact police on the 24-hour non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 43190320460 or make a report online.

“I am particularly keen to hear from anybody who may have dash-cam footage of the incident to get in touch.”
