- Daventry News - Police Appeal for Witnesses After Fatal A14 Crash
The A14 was closed yesterday at the Catthorpe Interchange after a crash that claimed the life of a man.
It happened shortly after 2.30pm and involved two vehicles, a white Mercedes lorry and a grey Renault Master van.
The vehicles were travelling on the westbound carriageway, near to the junction with the M1 and M6.
A man in his 50s (who was the vans driver) was pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger in the same vehicle was taken to hospital but has since been discharged.
No other vehicles were involved and no one else was injured in the incident.
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 101, quoting incident 359 of 26 February.
