A silver BMW travelling from the Marlow Road direction hit the island and bollard at the Northfield End roundabout on Friday afternoon at around 2.30pm.
Oil from the engine poured all over the road and island. The car was seen trying to drive away and the police then stopped the driver.
Councillor David Eggleton who saw the incident said, “It could have been a whole lot worse if there were pedestrians on the island which is used by many to cross the road.”
This junction has been the scene of a number of accidents over the last year including a van who hit an 84-year-old woman who was crossing the road who sadly died in May 2019. The driver was later charged with dangerous driving.
