Police seek witnesses to crash on M1 near Rugby

Rugby Editorial 2nd Feb, 2023   0

WITNESSES are being sought after a man was seriously injured in a crash on the M1 on Tuesday (January 31).

At around 3.30am, a grey Citroen C1 travelling northbound between junctions 16 and 17 collided with the central barrier, causing it to cross the carriageway and collide with the hard shoulder barrier.

A red Mann light goods vehicle (LGV) then collided with the car before hitting the barrier on the hard shoulder and coming to rest in a ditch.

The driver of the Citroen – a man in his 20s – was taken to University Hospital Coventry with serious injuries. The driver of the lorry – a man in his 40s – sustained minor injuries.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have captured the collision on dash-cam footage.

Anyone with information is asked to email [email protected] or call the Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615 or Northamptonshire Police on 101.
