A third teenager involved in the Marlow Bottom hit-and-run on New Year's Eve has told how he and two friends were smashed into by a car as they walked to the town's fireworks display.

The teenager, who will remain anonymous, exclusively revealed to the Bucks Free Press the horrifying experience that he and his friends encountered.

At around 9.30pm to 9.40pm, the teenager was in the middle of his friends as they walked to the town’s firework display by the bridge.

As they were making their way from Marlow Bottom, a car, which has been described as a black Vauxhall, came at them from behind.

After noticing the sound of the car, the teenager who was in the middle of his friends decided, to step back and jump onto the hood of the car, back first, to avoid being run over by the car.

He then rolled onto the road where he saw the 17-year-old girl’s legs trapped underneath the car, with the 16-year-old boy also getting knocked to the crowd.

The teenager said: "Whatever happened, I knew I was going to get hit. I was either going over or under the car’.

“When the guy hit us, he stopped, asked us if he was OK and then drove off.

“And to be honest, I did hurt my shoulder but it was the adrenaline that got me through it as I didn’t feel the pain until a day or so later.

“The police and ambulance then came shortly afterwards but I told them I was fine.

“I just ended up helping the paramedics as I’ve done some first aid training before and we didn’t let that spoil the night, as the police escorted my friend and I to the firework display.”

The girl was taken to Wexham Park Hospital where she was given treatment before being discharged, whilst the boy was seen to by paramedics at the scene but was not taken to hospital.
