We are sorry to report that there has been another serious accident at the crossroads of Stanbridge Road with Lower Road and Woodways.

On Tuesday evening, 19th January, at approximately 6.00pm, a young man riding a motorcycle from the northern end of Stanbridge Road seems to have missed the fact that the East-West route (Lower Road / Woodways) has priority, and that there is a giveway requirement for those travelling along Standbridge Road in either direction.

As a consequence, the young rider has collided with a silver hatchback driven by a female who was travelling into the village from the Aylesbury direction.

The road was closed for over an hour as the ambulance service attended to the motorcyclist, stabilising him at the scene before taking him to A&E.

We are given to understand that the motorcyclist has sustained serious leg injuries.

We have no information concerning the female driver of the motor car, although the impact was sufficient to have caused serious damage to the front offside of the vehicle and smashed its windscreen (see image).

It is unlikely that the road will be cleared in all directions for several hours.
