Accident at Clay Corner 02
Clay Corner 02

We are sorry to report that yet another road traffic accident has occurred at Clay Corner crossroads — i.e., at the intersection on Stanbridge Road with Woodways and Lower Road, near the Medical Centre in Haddenham.

The incident happened on Saturday evening, 23rd April.

Two small cars were involved and, as you can see from the photographs, it looks very much like drivers and/or passengers have had to be cut from the wreckage — the roofs have been removed.

Police are remaining tight-lipped about any details, for obvious reasons. However, we understand that there were no fatalities, thankfully.

Although the air ambulance was called we understand that it was not used to transport casualties, which hopefully is a positive sign.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the calsualties and their loved ones, and we all wish them a speedy recovery.

This accident serves to underline the risks inherent in the road alignment and signage at these crossroads. However, according to Haddenham parish council, Bucks County Council regards these crossroads as being very low on its priority list for change.

Residents fear that it will take a fatality before there is a re-think at Bucks CC level.

We will bring you more information as and when we receive it.
