Ice warning follows early-morning crashes
8:00am Tuesday 21st January 2014 in News
The fire and rescue service in Oxfordshire has warned about driving in cold and icy conditions after it was called to two crashes yesterday morning.
A man in his 50s was taken to hospital when a lorry collided with a car in Abingdon Road at 8.40am and two cars collided in Bladon Road, Woodstock shortly after 9am.
Road safety manager Mick Clarke said: “Driving slower allows additional room to slow down and stop. It can take ten times longer to stop on an icy road than a dry road, so it is important people drive to the conditions.”
South Central Ambulance Service was last night unable to provide details on the extent of the man’s injuries.
