A driver in his 50s has died on the A14 after a crash between his van and a white Mercedes HGV.

It happened shortly after 230pm yesterday (Tuesday 26th  February) on the westbound carriageway, near the M1/M6 junction.

The victim's passenger was taken to hospital but has since been discharged.

DC Ali Briance from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit is appealing for anyone who saw the collision or may have dashcam footage to come forward.

She said:

“If anyone travelling along this stretch of the A14 at the time of the collision saw either of the vehicles just before, or witnessed the incident itself, please contact me.

I would also ask motorists travelling on either side of the carriageway to check any dashcam footage they have as this could assist with our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Leicestershire Police on 101, quoting incident 359 of February 26.
