The incident happened around 8pm on Saturday March 19 when a white Vauxhall Vivaro van was involved in a collision with a pedestrian at a bus stop on Middleton Stoney Road, Bicester. The pedestrian, a 16-year-old boy, suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital. He has since been discharged.

The van did not stop and is believed to also have been involved in a collision with a traffic calming island in Chesterton.

A 39-year-old man, from Bicester, was arrested on suspicion of driving without due care and attention, driving when alcohol level above the legal limit, driving whilst unfit through drink and failing to stop after a road accident. He has since been released under investigation.

Police have launched an appeal for witnesses to the incident.

Investigating officer, PC Steve Lane, of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said: “I am appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident, or anyone who has information about what happened, to please come forward.

“I’d also ask any motorists who have dash-cams to check any footage around the time of the incident in Bicester and also in Chesterton, in case it may have captured anything that could assist the investigation.

“Anyone with information can contact police by calling 101 or online, quoting reference 43220120706.”
