A motorcyclist had a lucky escape when his machine was trapped under the wheel of a van after a collision in Henley today (Friday).

A motorcyclist had a lucky escape when his machine was trapped under the wheel of a van after a collision in Henley today (Friday).

The blue Honda leaked petrol after the accident with a Transport Unlimited transit van, which happened in Gravel Hill at about 8.45am.

An ambulance was called to the scene but the male motorcyclist and the van driver were not injured.

Police diverted traffic coming down the hill through Hop Gardens while traffic coming up the hill was signalled to slow down past the crash scene.

This accident comes in the week that father-of-three Andrew Bridekirk launched a campaign to get a crossing installed on Gravel Hill, which he calls the ?gauntlet of death?.

He had a near-miss with a driver when he walked daughter Elisia, six, to Badgemore Primary School last week.

Oxfordshire County Council, which has responsibility for roads, said as there were no accidents recorded involving a pedestrian, they had no current plans to build a crossing.
