Officers investigating a fatal collision on the M1 last year are appealing for the occupants of a vehicle they believe to have been in the area at the time of the collision to come forward.

Emergency services were called on Friday 18 October 2019 at 11:50pm following reports a pedestrian had been involved in a collision with a black Mercedes CLA on the M1 Northbound.

25 year-old Jake Glover-Brown from Barnsley suffered fatal injuries and sadly died at the scene. Five people (three men, one teenager and one woman), aged between 16-years-old and 50-years-old, were arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. The 16-year-old boy was released under investigation and the other four were bailed pending further enquiries.

Enquiries into the investigation have led officers to believe there was a small hatch back vehicle, possibly a Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa or Astra size, light in colour, that pulled over on the hard shoulder, reported to have broken down at the scene in the moments immediately following the collision.

The car is believed to have pulled over for a short period of time with its hazard lights on. The occupants of the vehicle are not believed to have got out.

Do you own a similar a car? Were you on the M1 Northbound on Friday 18 October? If you have any information that can help officers please call 101 quoting incident number 1011 of 18 October 2019.
