Police are appealing for witnesses following a two-car collision on the A419 near South Cerney yesterday afternoon, in which a 22-year-old man was seriosly injured.

The accident happened near the entrance to the Duke Of Gloucester Barracks at around 1.20pm.

A black Peugeot 206 carrying a 30-year-old man from Wiltshire and his 22-year-old male passenger, was in collision with a red Peugeot 406 driven by a 68-year-old man from Fairford. 

The passenger in the black Peugeot was taken to the Great Western Hospital in Swindon by ambulance suffering injuries thought to be serious, but not life threatening.

Police would like to speak to two drivers who may have witnessed the accident – the driver of a black saloon car which was travelling from Cirencester towards Swindon around the time of the crash, as well as a woman driving a silver saloon car in the direction of Cirencester.

As well as the two potential witnesses being sought, police are asking anyone with information that they think may be helpful to their investigation to call 101 quoting incident 232 of February 20.

Alternatively, information can be given anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, or via the charity's website.

In some cases Crimestoppers may offer a reward of up to £1,000 where information leads to a conviction.
