A councillor called for urgent changes following another crash involving a cyclist at The Plain roundabout.

Witnesses said emergency services went to the scene and a cyclist was taken to hospital following the collision yesterday evening (January 18).

Multiple road closures were put in place around St Clement’s Street, Iffley Road and The Plain.

Katherine Miles, Liberal Democrat councillor for Summertown Ward, posted on X about the accident.

She said: "I did not witness the collision itself but saw the aftermath. The collision involved a vehicle and person on a bike and the emergency services were in attendance last night.

"I understand that the injured person was taken to hospital for treatment with non-life threatening injuries. 

"Thank you to the emergency services for their swift response and hard work responding to this collision."

She added that it enforced the need for segregation of cyclists and vehicles.

"Another incident at the Plain reaffirms our collective resolve to continue to pursue Oxfordshire's goal of Vision Zero, to eliminate all road deaths and serious injuries on our city and county's roads," she said.

"To achieve this means we need to urgently remove conflicts between vulnerable road users and vehicles where ever possible.

"This will make it safer for people of all ages who can travel by bike to do so, which will reduce congestion and speed up buses."

Cycling campaign group Cyclox posted on X: "So sad to hear that there has been another serious collision involving a cycle rider on The Plain."

Oxford University scientist Dr Ling Felce, 35, was cycling when she was hit by a lorry and killed at The Plain in March 2022.

Oxfordshire County Council introduced a peak-hour loading ban at the roundabout aimed at improving safety.

Robert Whiting was jailed for eight years for causing Dr Felce's death.

Emergency services have been contacted for comment.
