A MAN and a woman have been injured in a crash near Abingdon that closed Drayton Road.

The pair were heading towards Abingdon from Drayton when the crash happened at about 8.45am, with their green Volvo V40 flipping and ending up on its roof.

No other vehicle was involved and police are now trying to discover what caused the accident, Sergeant Kerry Clarke said.
