A MOTORCYCLIST was flown by air ambulance to hospital with serious leg injuries after his motorbike collided with a car at about 9am Chilton, closing Hagbourne Hill.

A woman in the car was also taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford by land ambulance, but her injuries are believed to be less serious.

The collision has shut the Hagbourne Hill road both ways near West Hagbourne. The road - between Chilton and the A417 - is likely to close the road until mid-afternoon.

It comes amid a planned roadworks closure of the nearby A34 southbound between the A4130 Milton Interchange and M4 Junction 13 from 10pm yesterday to 6am Monday.

South Central Ambulance Service spokesman Gill Hodgetts said paramedics were called at 9.07am.

She said: “We sent one ambulance, an officer and the air ambulance to the a male motorcyclist and a female in the car who were injured.

“The man has injuries to his legs and was taken to the John Radcliffe by air ambulance. His injuries are fairly serious but not thought to be life-threatening.

“The female has been taken to the John Radcliffe but her injuries are thought not to be as bad as his.”
