Police are appealing for witnesses after a driver suffered serious leg injuries in a head-on collision in Iver.
At about 6.30pm on Saturday a white Ford Transit van overtook another vehicle in a 30mph zone in Bangors Road South.
A short time later, the Transit crossed to the wrong side of the road, colliding head-on with a white Kia Picanto.
The driver of the Picanto, a 31-year-old woman, was taken to Wexham Park Hospital with serious but not life-threatening leg injuries.
The Transit then struck a red Mercedes which was travelling behind the Picanto with the van driver jumping out of the vehicle and running off.
Officers located the 47-year-old driver, from Slough, nearby and arrested him on suspicion of drink-driving.
He has since been released under investigation.
Investigating officer PC Tom Smith of the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing based at Amersham, said: “I am very keen to speak to anyone who saw the van prior to the collision, or who witnessed it, to call the 24-hour non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 43180336305.
“I am also keen to hear from anybody who may have dash-cam footage at around that time to make contact.”
