WITNESS APPEAL: BMW crashes near Watford’s M1 Junction

 Published on: 2nd January 2020   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Police officers are appealing for information and witnesses following a single car collision near Watford.

On Sunday, December 8, at around 1.40am, a black BMW 5 Series was involved in a collision on the M1 southbound, just before Junction 6a.

PC Emma Alston, who is investigating the case, said: “We are appealing for witnesses as this is a very busy stretch of road.

“If you were driving in the area at the time, and witnessed the collision or drove past the scene after it happened, please get in contact.

“Alternatively, if you were driving near Junction 6a around the time specified and have a dash cam fitted to your vehicle, please review the footage and send us anything that you think could be of use.

“We also believe that one witness in particular, a woman who was driving a white car who stopped to help one of the motorists, could have key information which could assist our investigation. 

“If you were that motorist, or you know who she is, please get in touch with us as soon as possible.” 

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Alston directly via email at
