A man suffered serious injuries in a fail to stop road traffic collision in Oxford Road, High Wycombe on Friday 27th December 2019.

At around 10.35pm, a 48 year old man was walking in Oxford Road near to the junction with Bridge Street and the Bus Station when he attempted to cross the road.

A light blue coloured vehicle was driving towards the 48 year old man so he moved back to the kerbside to avoid a collision. However as the 48 year old man proceeded to cross the road the light blue vehicle reversed and collided with the 48 year old man.

As a result of the collision the 48 year old man sustained a broken leg and severe bruising to his shoulder. The vehicle was then driven away from the scene without stopping.

The injured man was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
