A man has suffered serious head injuries after his car crashed with a HGV in Buckinghamshire.

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to a collision on the A4146 Stoke Hammond bypass on Monday 10th June.

At just after 6pm, a blue Ford Fiesta travelling towards Leighton Buzzard from Milton Keynes had become stranded in lane one. A blue Volvo HGV travelling in the same direction collided with the rear of the Fiesta causing serious damage. The collision trapped the driver inside the Fiesta.

The driver of the Ford Fiesta, a 21 year old local man, sustained serious head injuries. He was airlifted by the air ambulance service and is currently in a serious but stable condition in the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.

The 30 year old driver of the HGV, which was a foreign-registered vehicle, was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving at the scene and has been released on bail to Milton Keynes on 12 August.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or may have seen the HGV or Ford Fiesta prior to the collision should contact the investigating officer PC Phil McGlue from the Milton Keynes Roads Policing Department on 101.
