A South Central Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "Thames Valley Police contacted us about this incident requesting our help, reporting there had been a two-car collision on the A420 at Great Coxwell, Faringdon, which had closed the carriageway in both directions.

"We sent two ambulances and a rapid response vehicle to the scene.

"Two patients were treated at the scene for minor injuries and a third required hospital treatment for minor injuries and was taken to the John Radcliffe."

An eyewitness, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “We could see the accident of an overturned car and what looks like another car slightly in the ditch.

“The police then closed the road and another member of the public advised us to turn around and take an alternative route as there was no way of getting through.”
