No arrests have been made after a pedestrian was critically injured in a crash on a busy Swindon road.

A man in his 30s was rushed to hospital in a critical condition after being struck by a car on Queens Drive, near New College Swindon, on Saturday morning (May 25).

Police closed the northbound carriageway, from Whitbourne Avenue towards Drakes Way, for much of the day while officers remained at the scene to carry out an investigation.

This included the examination of a car just north of a crossing that was cordoned off while collision investigators worked.

Police have since confirmed they are not seeking any further witnesses.

At the time, a spokesperson added: “Please be aware that Queens Drive in Swindon is currently closed following a serious road traffic collision.

“A pedestrian, a man in his 30s, was struck by a car in the early hours and has been transferred to hospital where he remains in a critical condition.
