Woman and child critical after eight-vehicle crash

A child and a 31-year-old woman are in a critical condition in hospital following an eight-vehicle crash.

A lorry and seven cars were involved in the accident on the A34 at Hinksey Hill, Oxford, at about 19:30 BST on 25 August.

The woman and child, who were taken to Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital, were travelling northbound in one of the cars.

Police said they are in a "critical but stable" condition.

The northbound carriageway was closed for almost 10 hours while emergency services attended the scene.

A 58-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
