A driver was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after a three-car accident near Redbourn yesterday.

The incident happened on the M1 southbound carriageway between Junction 10 for Luton airport and Junction 9 for Redbourn just before 6.30pm.

Three vehicles were reportedly involved - a white BMW, a silver Vauxhall Astra, which was broken down on the hard shoulder at the time and a lorry, which did not stop at the scene.

Police are keen for anyone with any information or dash cam footage to come forward.

“As part of this, we are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, or events leading up to it, to please contact us. We’re particularly keen to hear from anyone who has a dash cam fitted and was travelling in the area between 6.25pm and 6.35pm.”
