A pedestrian has been rushed to hospital with potentially serious injuries after she was struck by a car in Aylesbury this afternoon.

An ambulance was called to Station Way West at 12.48pm after a female pedestrian was hit by a car, just outside Aylesbury Station.

Police were also called to the scene and blocked off a section of the A41 Friaridge Road between Aylesbury Station car park and Morrisons while the ambulance crew was on the scene.

A critical care car from Thames Valley Air Ambulance was also dispatched and helped the main ambulance crew on the ground.

The pedestrian was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital in the ambulance where she is being treated for "potentially serious injuries."

A spokeswoman from South Central Ambulance Service said: "Following treatment at the scene by all our crews the patient was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital by land ambulance accompanied by the ambulance crew and the team from the Air Ambulance."

Police on the scene closed the A41 Friaridge Road in both directions while the patient was receiving treatment, urging drivers to find alternate routes.

The road has since been reopened and traffic is flowing normally.

A Thames Valley Police spokeswoman said it was not appealing for witnesses to the incident.
