The DAF lorry left the southbound stretch of the road between junction 15 (Northampton) and 14 (Milton Keynes) at around 7.40am. It then hit a number of trees.
The driver, a 46-year-old man from Lancashire, died at the scene. His passenger, a 51-year-old man, suffered serious injuries and was airlifted to the Coventry Wargrave Hospital where he remains.
The motorway remained open throughout the incident with lanes one and two shut for a period whist the lorry was recovered.
Investigating officer, Sgt Tony Griffiths from the Roads Policing Unit based at Amersham, said: “I would appeal to anyone who saw the collision itself, or saw the vehicle prior to the collision to contact police via 101.
“It is vital that members of the public come forward so we can piece together what happened on this stretch of the M1 yesterday morning."
