Three people escaped serious injury in a ‘potentially life-threatening’ crash just outside Thame.
The driver of one of the cars was taken to hospital with leg injuries while the driver and passenger in the other vehicle suffered only minor injuries following the smash on Chinnor Road last Wednesday.
A passing motorist was first on the scene at around 6.30pm and helped the driver with leg injuries out of their vehicle.
The driver and passenger of the other car escaped unaided.
Medically trained firefighters provided first aid to all three before South Central Ambulance Service paramedics arrived. The road was closed and Thames Valley Police is investigating the cause of the crash.
Incident commander, crew manager Kevin Morgan said: “This was a considerable impact to both vehicles and fortunately on this occasion the drivers and passengers only suffered minor injuries.
“I would like to take this opportunity to remind all road users to wear their seatbelts and to take extra care whilst driving on rural roads.
“This incident had the potential to be life-threatening and life-changing.”
According to the fire service, almost 60 per cent of road deaths in Oxfordshire occur on rural roads.
