COLLISION: Man dies on M1 near Junction 6 Watford

 Published on: 26th August 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

A man died in the early hours of this morning (August 26) following a collision on the M1 between Junctions 6 and 6a (M25 interchange), near to Watford.

Hertfordshire Constabulary are appealing for information and witnesses following a single-vehicle collision on the northbound carriageway involving a black Ford Galaxy between 12.45am and 1am.

For reasons unknown, the car has been in collision with the central reservation before coming to rest on the central verge.

The driver, a man in his 30s, was taken to hospital where he sadly passed away a short time later.

Sergeant James Wood, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts are very much with the family of the driver at what is a very distressing time for them. We have launched an investigation in order to determine how the collision occurred.

“We believe the vehicle travelled up from Junction 1 so we would be very keen to hear from anyone travelling on that stretch of motorway who thinks they saw the vehicle prior to the collision.

“If you have a dash cam fitted to your vehicle and believe you may have captured the Ford Galaxy on your footage earlier this morning, then we would really like to speak to you.”
