Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with footage of the incident, as well as to a driver who had a near miss with the same motorcyclist, who was riding a black Keeway motorbike, shortly before the crash, to get in touch.

Investigating officer PC Mary-Ellen Caswell said: “I am appealing for any witnesses to this collision, whereby a man has sustained a life-changing injury, to please come forward.

“I would also ask anyone that may have dash-cam footage of the collision, as well as the moments before, particularly if those motorists were travelling through the traffic lights either on the A413 slip road or on the A40 Oxford Road.

“I am also appealing to the driver of a large black vehicle, potentially a Mercedes, that had a near miss with the motorbike just before the collision, to get in touch. We know that this driver was travelling along the A40 towards Denham.”

The young victim of a second crash in Stokenchurch, on Friday, is also being treated for serious injuries.

The 10-year-old was on foot when he was involved in a crash with a black Volkswagon Golf, on the A40 Wycombe Road near to the junction with The Coppice, at 4.15pm.

The boy remains in hospital.

No arrests have been made but police are urging those who saw the incident or who may have access to CCTV or dashcam footage to come forward.
