Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision in Bicester.

Shortly after 12.15am Thursday, June 2, a silver Hyundai travelling on the A41 between the Rodney House roundabout and Oxford Road was involved in a collision with a white DAF lorry.

The sole occupant of the Hyundai, a man aged in his forties from Banbury, was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital where he has since died. His next of kin has been informed.

The driver of the van was uninjured.

The A41 was closed in the area while Roads Policing officers attended to respond to the incident and to investigate the circumstances of the collision and was later reopened.

Investigating officer PC Perry Knight, from the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or who saw the vehicles travelling prior to the collision. Anyone with any details which could assist enquiries should contact police.”

If you have information about the incident contact PC Knight via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 quoting URN 15 2/6.
