Witnesses are being sought after a man was seriously injured in a collision on the M1 earlier today.
At about 3.30am, a grey Citroen travelling northbound between junctions 16 and 17, collided with the central barrier. This caused the vehicle to cross the carriageway and collide with the hard shoulder barrier.
A red LGV then collided with the car before hitting the barrier on the hard shoulder and coming to rest in the ditch.
As a result of the collision, the driver of the Citroen car – 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.
The Police 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 CollisionAppeals@northants.police.uk or alternatively call the Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615 or Northamptonshire Police on 101.
