A man in his 60s died in hospital yesterday after being involved in a road traffic accident on the M1 on Sunday.

He was taken to St George’s Hospital in London after the accident in which the Renault Clio he was a passenger in, collided with a Vauxhall Astra in the central lane, just after 9.40am between Junctions 7 and 6, near the exit slip road to the M25.

A woman in her 50s, who was a fellow passenger, was taken to St Mary’s Hospital and remains in a critical condition.

The driver of the Clio, a woman in her 40s, was taken to Watford General Hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the Astra, a man in his 40s, who was travelling alone, was also taken to Watford General Hospital with slight injuries.

The road was closed until approximately 1pm.

Police from Beds, Cambs and Herts Roads Policing Unit are still appealing for witnesses.

Sgt Colin Jenkinson said: “I would urge anyone who may have seen this incident or either car prior to the collision taking place to come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the non-emergency number 101.
