A 44-year-old man who died following a collision on the M1 northbound last Friday (7 June) has today been formally named as Jason Mercer. 

At around 8.15am on Friday, there was a three vehicle collision on the northbound carriageway of the M1 involving a silver Ford Focus, a silver Ford transit van and a lorry.

Two men were sadly pronounced dead at the scene. 

Mr Mercer’s family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers. They have requested that their privacy is respected at this incredibly difficult time.

A 39-year-old man was arrested at the scene and has now been released on bail pending further enquiries. 

Officers are asking anyone who saw what happened, or who may have dash cam footage, to contact them. 

If you can help, please call 101 quoting incident 196 of 7 June 2019.
