Man in life-threatening condition after A4 crash

A MAN in his twenties has been airlifted to hospital in a life-threatening condition following a collision between a car and a motorbike on the A4 this afternoon.

Paramedics treated him at the scene of the crash by the Lower Denford junction near Hungerford before he was flown to Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital.

The A4 Bath Road was closed following the collision just before 3pm but has since reopened.

    We live on that junction and keep our hedge trimmed. It is the contour of the road (a slight bend and gentle dip) which make the junction perilous. Every day we hear blaring horns from near misses. We have nagged the council constantly to improve this junction: lower speed limit, speed camera, bollards (like kintbury junction 2 miles up the road), a roundabout, traffic lights but they are absolutely not interested.

    We must ask that the councils and highways look at the junction. The bushs are so overgrown that drivers pulling out cannot see oncoming traffic .

    Sad news. A fellow biker myself, A4 is a lovely smooth ride. I hope he recovers well. If he needs help getting back on 2 wheels there is a charity www.tbex.so.uk which help riders out. Amazing work.

    Oh dear, I was driving back from a Rugby match against Hungerford this afternoon, and saw the A4 closed. As a fellow biker myself, I hope the young guy makes a full recovery. Positive wishes to his family and friends.
