A man has died after an early morning collision on the M40 at the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border.

West Midlands Ambulance Service received a 999 call shortly after 2.30am this morning (Tuesday) to reports of a collision involving several HGVs on the northbound carriageway of the M40 between junctions 11 and 12 near Burton Dassett, Warwickshire. 

Two ambulances and a paramedic officer attended the scene along with colleagues from South Central Ambulance Service, police and fire.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Sadly nothing could be done to save the driver of one lorry, a man, and he was confirmed dead on scene.

"A second lorry driver, a man in his 50s, was out of his vehicle upon emergency services arrival and, upon assessment by ambulance staff was found to have sustained minor arm injuries and neck pain. He was given treatment by ambulance staff before being discharged on scene.

"A third patient with minor injuries was treated by our South Central colleagues."
