A five-year-old boy suffered serious and potentially life-threatening injuries in a serious car accident in Windsor Road yesterday, police have confirmed.
At about 6.30pm a red Ford Focus with four people was heading towards Windsor when it collided with a silver Citroen Xsara coming the other way on the A308, near Water Oakley.
The boy was a passenger in the Ford Focus. He was airlifted to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
A male driver, a female passenger, both in their twenties, and a two-year-old-girl, all suffered injuries and were taken to Wexham Park Hospital.
The female driver, and only occupant, of the Citroen Xsara, was taken to Wexham Park Hospital, suffering from breathing difficulties.
The road was partially closed for about five hours.
Police are appealing for witnesses who have not yet spoken to police.
Anyone with information should phone Sergeant Carl Kneale on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
