A MAN has been arrested following last night's collision on the A40 at Headington. 

Police said a red Astra was involved in the collision with two articulated lorries at about 7.30pm on the southbound carriageway heading east.

The lorry's fuel tank was punctured with 100 litres of diesel spilling on the road. 

It was closed for several hours while the fuel was cleared. 

The 53-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of aggravated vehicle taking, driving without a licence or third party insurance and drink driving. 

He's still being questioned by police.
