AN elderly couple were taken to hospital after a car crash in Deddington yesterday.

The couple’s blue Rover collided with a van in Oxford Road at the junction with Chapmans Lane in the village, shortly before 11am.

The fire service had to cut the couple from the car, and they were treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, as a precaution.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident.
