Rugby Editorial 27th Feb, 2019   0

A VAN driver died after a crash on the A14 near the Catthorpe Interchange yesterday (Tuesday February 26).

A grey Renault Master van and a white Mercedes HGV collided just after 2.30pm on the westbound carriageway near the junction with the M1 and M6.

The driver of the van, a man in his 50s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His passenger was taken to hospital but has since been discharged. No one else was injured.

DC Ali Briance from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit is appealing for anyone who saw the collision or may have dashcam footage to come forward.

She said: “If anyone travelling along this stretch of the A14 at the time of the collision saw either of the vehicles just before, or witnessed the incident itself, please contact me.

“I would also ask motorists travelling on either side of the carriageway to check any dashcam footage they have as this could assist with our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Leicestershire Police on 101, quoting incident 359 of February 26.
