Police still seek witnesses to the fatal accident involving two vehicles.
The accident happened at about 8.15 Tuesday, January 24, after two cars, a Porsche Boxter and a Ford Fiesta, collided on Oxhey Hill, causing one of the vehicles to land dangerously balanced in a hedgerow.
Fire crews from Banbury, Chipping Norton and Deddington with additional assistance from Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service propped up the unstable car in order to secure it and safely remove the driver who was air lifted to Coventry hospital with serious injuries. He died in the early hours of January 25, his next of kin have been informed.

Police are appealing to witnesses to the accident although they believe they have located a man who was a passenger in the Fiesta and who subsequently walked away from the crash site.
