THIS dramatic picture show the scene of devastation after a head-on crash which set a car on fire.

On Monday, two adults and an 18-month old baby were pulled out of a car by a member of the public after it crashed on Oxford Road in East Hanney.

The adults, including a 60-year-old woman, were then taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital for further treatment.

The cars crashed near Wantage at about 11.30am on Monday.

The picture shows an Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue firefighter hosing an estate car after flames soar from its boot.

Another car, a white Nissan, lies next to it – but not on fire – and bonnet first in grass.

An ambulance, a police car and a fire engine can be clearly seen in the background as traffic builds up.

SCAS spokesman David Gallagher said on Monday: "One of the drivers, a female in her 60s, had sustained multiple serious injuries.

"After treatment at the scene was then taken by road to the major trauma centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital, with the air ambulance team travelling with her to hospital.

"Two other patients in the second vehicle sustained minor injuries and were also taken by ambulance to the John Radcliffe."

The road had re-opened to traffic by mid-afternoon.

It had been shut for several hours while the vehicles were moved and patients treated.
