At around 1.35pm, a silver Volvo left The Street in Stratfield Mortimer and entered the graveyard of St Mary’s Church.

It was involved in a collision with two pedestrians, a man in his 70s and a boy aged seven.

The man suffered cuts to his body and injured his arm, which required surgery, and the boy suffered minor injuries.

PC Adam Price, based at Loddon Valley police station, said: “Firstly, our thoughts are with everyone injured in this road traffic collision.

“It is thought to be caused by a medical episode and is not being treated as malicious or deliberate at this time.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who saw a silver Volvo driving around Stratfield Mortimer around the time of the incident or the collision itself.

“Please review any dash-cam footage if you were in the local area in case it has captured anything that could help our investigation.

“If you have any information please report it by calling 101 or making a report online, quoting reference 43210577328.”
