A SIX-year-old boy is fighting for his life after he was involved in a collision with a car.

The boy was airlifted to the John Radcliffe Hospital with life-threatening head injuries following the collision with a white Audi Q5 in Faringdon Road, Watchfield, yesterday. 

Police said the boy had just got off a bus when the accident happened at about 8.20am.

PC Mike Woodward, of Thames Valley Police’s roads policing unit, urged witnesses to call 101 with information.

He said: “There were a number of people on the bus who may have witnessed the incident and may not have released the serious nature of the collision and I would ask they come forward and speak to an officer.”
