Six injured in bus crash on A4074

SIX people were injured when a bus and a van collided on the A4074 between Chazey Heath and Cane End last night.

Police, firefighters and ambulance crews were called to the scene after the incident at 8.55pm.

There were 15 people on the bus and three needed treatment for their injuries at the scene while another two were taken to hospital by ambulance, together with the van driver.

Fire crews from Goring and Henley attended, along with rescue vehicles from Didcot and Dee Road and Wokingham Road stations in Reading.

Incident commander Marcus Reay, of Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: “The crews worked tirelessly during the incident liaising very closely with our colleagues from Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service, South Central Ambulance and Thames Valley Police.

“This incident, due to its demanding nature, required a joint approach by the emergency services and this was centred around the needs of those injured.

“Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service has been called to five incidents on the roads today and I would like to take this opportunity to remind drivers to take care when driving at this time of year in adverse weather.

“There are a lot of leaves on the roads and the extra rain is causing flooding in area where drivers might not expect it.”
