THE RAF confirmed last night one of its personnel had been killed in a car crash.

A 21-year-old man based at Brize Norton died in an early-morning crash in West Oxfordshire yesterday.

The driver of the silver Peugeot 207 was pronounced dead following the accident on the slip road from the westbound A40 to the B4477 at Curbridge.

Police were called at 5.02am. A 24-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman also in the vehicle were taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

Police said their injuries were not life threatening.

Inspector Sandie Harris said: “There was one fatality and two people were taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital with potentially serious injuries.

“We believe it was a single-vehicle accident with no other vehicles involved.”

The crash victims have not yet been formally named.

Two ambulances attended.

The slip road was closed and reopened at 9am.
