Three young men seriously injured in Woolhampton crash

Three people have been seriously injured following a collision in Woolhampton last night (Monday). 

A 15-year-old boy sustained a serious internal injury and a 19-year-old man sustained serious back injuries, while a 16-year-old boy had his shoulder dislocated in the crash.

A white Vauxhall Corsa and a black Vauxhall Zafira were involved in the collision, which occurred on the eastbound side of the A4 close to the BP petrol station at 9.20pm last night.

The three people seriously injured were among nine people injured in the crash.  

The 15-year-old was travelling in the Zafira along with a a 41-year-old woman, a 47-year-old man, a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old girl, who all sustained minor injuries.

Two 18-year-old men who were in the Corsa also sustained minor injuries.

Thames Valley Police said that everyone involved was taken to hospital, and seven of them currently remain there.

Investigating officer Police Constable Jamie Payne, of the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing based at Three Mile Cross, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who saw this incident, or who has any information relating to it.

“If you have any details which you think could help our investigation, please call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101.”

Firefighters from Newbury and Tadley were dispatched to the scene.

No people were trapped and the firefighters made the scene safe and cleared up an oil spill.

Three ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, and a paramedic team leader also attended.

    Everyone should stop speculatating and let the police do their jobs. Evidence doesn't lie and eventually everyone will know the truth. Stop blaming 'mature' or 'young' drivers. Everyone should take a look at their families and send prayers to those involved. 'Hear say' doesn't mean anything remember that. Funny how quickly Chinese whispers occur. The police know the truth and that's doesn't lie. Coming from a young driver myself. Leave the families at peace

    mature driver pulls onto wrong side of road to avoid puddle hits young driver head on, young driver will of course be blamed as mature drivers never make mistakes or drive with their heads in the clouds Get real, before you losers speculate maybe you should look at your own driving capabilities as i see far more mistakes being made by mature drivers who think they are in the right or its their given right to make mistakes, mistake kill, as a motorcyclist i video these drivers all the time, i have had more near incidents with mature drivers than youths and thats a fact

      Family or friends of the "young" driver? Maybe unless you was there you should keep your biased opinions to yourself. Plonker.
