Police are appealing for witnesses after a car collided with a tree in Maidenhead.
Yesterday (Saturday) between around 12pm and 12.50pm, a silver Vauxhall Meriva was travelling south on the A308, Maidenhead Road, Pinkneys Green, south of the A404M when it collided with a tree on the opposite side of the road.
Two adults and a baby were taken to Wexham Park Hospital following the incident, where the passenger remains with serious injuries. The others have since been discharged.
Police say they are looking for a specific witness who transported the occupants to hospital, as well as anybody who saw or has dashcam footage of the incident.

“We would like to speak with them about this incident and would encourage them to get in touch.
“We would also like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision or may have dash-cam footage of the incident or the vehicle prior.
