| September 29, 2017

A serious injury collision in Chalfont St Peter has left a teenage girl with serious head injuries.

At around 5.15pm on Wednesday 27th September 2017 a 14 year old girl, who had been cycling in Austenwood Lane near the junction with Bull Lane, was found in the road with serious head injuries.

Officers from Thames Valley Police and the ambulance service attended the scene and the injured girl was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

The girl is suffering from life-threatening injuries and she remains in a critical condition.

The road was closed while police officers attended the scene to investigate the circumstances.

Investigating officer PC John Belson, from the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing based at Amersham, said: ‘I am keen to speak to anyone who was in Austenwood Lane near Bull Lane at or around the time of the incident who saw or who has any information which may assist with the investigation.

We are in the early stages of making enquiries to establish the circumstances which led to the cyclist sustaining the injuries.

This was a particularly traumatic incident involving a school child on her bicycle. Our thoughts firstly go out to her family at this difficult time. I really wish to hear from anyone who saw what happened to contact me or recalls seeing a cyclist around the time in question.

Thames Valley Police are appealing from anyone who witnessed the collision to contact the 24 hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 quoting URN 1140 27/9.
