The Honda driver, a man in his thirties, was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital with a serious head injury, where he remains in a stable condition.

Investigating officer PC Craig Ridgley, of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said: “I am appealing for witnesses to this incident during the poor weather, whereby a driver has sustained serious injuries.

“I would ask that anyone who was in or near the area where the collision happened to get in touch with us if you saw anything or have any information on it.

“Also, I would urge any motorists in the area that have a dash-cam to please check their recordings in case anything significant was caught as it could help our investigation, and then send it to us.

“You can contact us by calling the 24-hour non-emergency number 101 or by making a report on our website, quoting reference number 43220477649.”
