A Bedgrove councillor says he is concerned about the amount of traffic travelling through the estate after an elderly man was hit at a zebra crossing

Mark Winn said: “There has been a general increase in traffic since the Tring Road roadworks and traffic lights. It is very concerning.

“This is a road for a residential area and it’s become a main road. Without a doubt the A41 roadworks have brought more traffic through Bedrove and as we get more housing in the area the traffic will increase.”

Mr Winn said he intends to speak to the county council to try and find out what caused the accident.

The 70-year-old man was taken by ambulance to Stoke Mandeville Hospital with life threatening injuries on Friday morning after the accident on Bedgrove in Aylesbury.

He was then transferred to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford where he remains.

He was crossing Camborne Avenue by the new block of flats when a blue Vauxhall Corsa collided with him on the zebra crossing.

The car stopped at the scene.

Police, who attended the scene at 10.40am on Friday, are appealing for witnesses to the accident.

PC Mike Ellyard said: “We are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collison to contact police.

“We are also appealing to speak to anyone who saw the blue Vauxhall Corsa driving prior to the collison.

“This happened in a busy street and there would have been people around who saw what happened.”

No one has been reported and no arrests have been made in relation to the accident.

If you have information about the collision, contact investigating officer PC Christopher Fallon via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101 quoting URN 511 of 20/12.

If you do not wish to speak directly to the police

you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 11.
