A car which crashed on the M1 between the junctions for St Albans and Hemel Hempstead in the early hours of this morning flipped several times before going over the crash barrier onto the adjacent A414.
Emergency services were called at about 12.35am to reports of a crash barrier collision involving a car between Junction 7 for St Albans and Junction 8 for Hemel Hempstead on the northbound stretch of the M1.
Tweeting a picture of the car - which ended up on the A414, causing severe delays between St Albans to Hemel Hempstead - the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit said: "Believe it or not, the two occupants of this car gor out and ran away after rolling several times and coming over the crash barrier from the M1 on to the A414. Manhunt under way!"
Firefighters also attended and confirmed nobody was trapped, but crews helped to make the scene safe.
