No one was seriously injured but the driver was treated at the scene by South Central Ambulance while people in the nearby The Black Prince pub were checked for shock.

Fire engines came from Kidlington and Slade Park.

Station manager Paul Molloy said the driver and the occupants of the pub had a very lucky escape and a few inches either way, the van could have crashed into the pub, or ended up in the river.
