A teenage moped rider suffered ‘potentially life-changing’ injuries in a crash in Uxbridge Road at the weekend.
The 18-year-old was riding a black Honda 125 moped when it collided with a grey Citroen DS3 at the George Green junction of Black Park Road.
Police said the crash took place at about 11.20am on Saturday.
The moped rider suffered serious ankle injuries and remains in Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital.
No arrests have been made.
