A14 Kelmarsh

Two people have died after a two lorry crash on the A14 in Northants this morning.

645pm update: 1 lane now open westbound (eastbound fully opened mid-afternoon)


At around 620am, a white Volvo LGV was travelling eastbound on the A14 in lane one, between junctions 1 and 2 - but for some reason (which is now under investigation); the vehicle moved into lane two and through the central reservation, onto the westbound carriageway, where it collided with a black Leyland LGV travelling in lane 1.

The driver of the Leyland died at the scene of the collision.

The driver of the Volvo was taken to University Hospital Coventry, where they later died.

Collision investigators are asking anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has information about it, to call the Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615.

Officers would particularly like to trace the driver of a dark or black saloon car, possibly a BMW, which was travelling eastbound towards Kettering, as they may have witnessed the collision and have information useful to the investigation.
