M1 Northants Bucks Salcey Forest

Two people who died in Monday's lorry crash on the M1 have now been formally identified as an elderly couple from Essex.

Maria Rossi, 80, and her husband Dario Rossi, 85, of Dunmow,  were driving on the southbound carriageway towards the Newport Pagnell services, when a northbound van transporter careered through the central barriers head-on into southbound traffic.

The collision happened at about 2.50pm on Monday (11th Sep), when a blue vehicle transporter was travelling between junctions 14 and 15 crossed the motorway and into Mr and Mrs Rossi's car - along with several other vehicles; a number of other people were injured.

Police are asking for any witnesses or anybody who has information about what happened, to call the Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615.
