Officers continuing to investigate a fatal road collision on the M1 in October 2020 have released new CCTV footage.

On the evening of Saturday 24 October 2020, emergency services were called to the M1 northbound, just before junction 38, at 7.05pm.
It is reported that Daniel Pietkiel, 33, was in the carriageway when he was struck by a white Toyota Hiace. He sadly died at the scene.

Since the incident, we have been working hard to piece together Daniel’s movements that day, and the day before to determine how he came to be in the carriageway.

We are now releasing some CCTV footage of Daniel from the day before his death and appealing for the public’s help to assist us as our investigation continues.

Daniel was seen at a CEX shop in the Alhambra Centre in Barnsley on Friday 23 October between 9.30am and 10.30am. Did you see him after he left the store, later in the day or in the moments leading up to his death? Can you help us build up a picture of the events leading up to the tragic collision?

If you saw Daniel on Friday 23 October 2020, witnessed the collision, or were driving along this stretch of the M1 with dash cam footage on that evening, please do get in touch.
The incident number to quote is 787 of 24 October 2020. You can also submit dash-cam footage via email to, quoting the incident number in the email subject.
