Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a single vehicle fatal collision in Mapledurham.

At around 11.50pm yesterday (22/8) a silver Mitsubishi Shogun was travelling in Pond Lane, when it lost control and rolled over.

A passenger who had been travelling in the vehicle, a 28-year-old local man, was ejected from the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle sustained minor injuries and was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital, from where he has since been discharged.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Katy Kent, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Sadly a man died following the collision and we are working to establish the circumstances. I would like to appeal to anyone who was in the area at around the time of the collision who witnessed it, or who saw the vehicle travelling in the area prior to the collision, to come forward and speak to police.

“If you have any information which could assist, please speak to officers.

“The victim’s next of kin are being supported by a specially-trained family liaison officer at this very difficult time.”
