Woman killed in horror rush-hour crash on M40 as cops call for witnesses | The Sun

A WOMAN has died in a horror rush-hour crash on the M40 as cops appeal for witnesses.

Emergency services rushed to the scene at around 7.37am this morning after a serious collision on the northbound carriageway of the M40 between Junctions 11 and 12 in Warwickshire.

There was also a minor collision on the southbound carriageway between the same junctions.

Sadly, despite the efforts of two off-duty police officers who performed CPR – and emergency services who arrived shortly after, a woman died at the scene.

DS Stephen Barr of the Serious Collision Investigation Team said: “This was a serious incident which has seen a woman tragically lose her life.

“We are conducting a full investigation and we are now asking for anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has dashcam footage, to please get in touch with us.

“Of particular interest to officers is any footage of a black Volkswagen Polo that was travelling northbound between junctions 11 and 12 between 07:00 and 07:37 this morning.

“Vehicles on the southbound carriageway were also affected by the collision as two cars heading southbound took evasive action, resulting in a further collision and we would appeal for any footage from those travelling southbound also."

The northbound carriageway remains closed but all lanes southbound have now reopened.

However, National Highways has warned there is a five mile tailback south causing delays of 40 minutes.
