An investigation has been launched into a collision in Oxfordshire that left two officers and a taxi driver with serious injuries. The Thames Valley Police vehicle was responding to an emergency when it collided with the taxi and another vehicle near Wallingford on Tuesday (January 2). Both officers and the taxi driver were taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital where they remain in a serious but stable condition. A driver from the third vehicle was treated for minor injuries at the scene. The Independent Police Complaints Commission is now investigating the incident. Darren Weston, of the South Central Ambulance Service, said: “Thanks to the excellent joint working from our staff alongside colleagues from Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, the Thames Valley Air Ambulance and officers from Thames Valley Police, the complex task of getting the three patients out of the two vehicles was accomplished with great care and professionalism.” He added: “On behalf of everyone at the scene, I would like to convey our best wishes to all those taken to hospital and their families. We wish them well in their recovery.”
