The driver of the black VW Polo, a 67-year-old woman, suffered a fractured wrist and was taken to hospital, but has since been discharged.

The two occupants of the blue Ford C-Max, a 36-year-old woman and a 13-year-old girl, suffered minor injuries and did not need to be taken to hospital.

Thames Valley Police is appealing for information following the crash.

Investigating officer, detective constable Darren Baker said: “My thoughts are with the family of the passenger of the silver Ford Focus, an eighty-five-year-old man, who sadly has died as a result of this collision.

“I am appealing to anyone who was travelling on the Abingdon to Culham Road at the time to contact me if they saw the incident or the vehicles involved.

“I would also ask anyone who was driving in the area with a dash camera to check their camera and contact me if they have recorded anything that might assist our investigation.

“The easiest way to contact the force is by calling 101 or visiting our website, quoting investigation reference 43240239027.”

This news comes after two other crash-related deaths in Oxfordshire this week as police appeal for further details.

A 57-year-old man from Bicester died in a motorcycle crash on bank holiday Monday after an incident with a Mercedes Sprinter van.

This incident occurred at around 9.40am at the junction of Middleton Stoney Road and Empire Road.

Elsewhere the driver, a man in his 20s, of an Audi A3 died after the car came to rest on its roof on Gravel Hill in Henley.

This was following a collision that involved no other vehicles on Tuesday, May 21 at around 11.10pm.
