Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses following a serious collision on the M1 southbound carriageway this morning (Wednesday).
Officers were called shortly before 6am to reports of an incident involving a black Toyota Pruis and a white HGV between junctions 11 and 10.
Emergency services attended and a man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Another man has been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and is currently in police custody for questioning.
Detective Sergeant Craig Wheeler from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “This incident took place at what would have been a busy time for morning traffic, so we are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed it take place or may have dashcam footage from the time.
“Any information could help us piece together the events which led to this serious incident.”
Delays and congestion in the area are likely to remain throughout the day while the scene is made safe, and investigations are carried out.
Anyone with information is urged to contact police on 101 quoting the reference number 41 of 13 December.
