No weapons found after police called to Wooburn Green

Thames Valley Police is renewing an appeal for witnesses after a 14-year-old girl was left with serious injuries in a serious road traffic collision.

The incident happened at around 5.30pm on Thursday, October 18 when an orange KTM motorcycle struck the girl in Wentworth Avenue.

The motorcycle then went onto collide with a parked red BMW.

The rider of the KTM fled the scene on a second motorcycle, which was blue in colour, with an unknown person.

The girl suffered multiple injuries and was taken to Wexham Park Hospital in Slough.

Investigating officer PC Callum Bushell of the Joint Operations Unit for Roads Policing based at Taplow, said: “

 “The victim suffered serious injuries as a result of this collision. The offender left the scene without any thought for the victim, and I am making a re-appeal for information to help us locate this person.

“I am sure that somebody will know the identity of the offender, or will have seen something that they have not reported to us.

“I am urging anybody with any information, or dash-cam footage to call 101, quoting reference number 43180319396.

“If you do not wish to speak directly with the police, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or alternatively, you can make a report online via https://www.thamesvalley.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/

“If anybody knows who the offender is, I am asking you to look into your conscience and do the right thing by contacting us.”

    Just a thought, but perhaps if the police investigated and prosecuted bike theft, gangs of feral youths wouldn't be riding around dangerously and antisocially on stolen bikes, and innocent members of the public wouldn't suffer injuries and property damage. And because these bike thieves work in gangs, you would have some leads to follow up in cases like this one, because you would have had them all on a list and in a file marked 'suspected motorbike thieves'. I mean, it's no big deal to park an unmarked car at Britwell Estate overnight, and take photos of the joyriders there, is it? It's going to be the same culprits, well known to the system, responsible for a litany of offences, hundreds of thefts, the occasional violent or drug-related crime, etc. You can't afford to deprioritise vehicle crime and instead just focus on policing Twitter. You may find, anyway, that the same low-lives who spew bile on the internet tend to the be the ones who steal bikes, and it's one of them who may have knocked into and injured this girl. Police work back to basics!
