Officers investigating the crash have released images of the car and have called for anyone with information or dash-cam footage to come forward.

Sergeant Steven Willetts, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Although this incident took place early on a Sunday morning, it happened on the M1 and so we’re reasonably confident that it will have been witnessed by other motorists.

“We’re still in the process of investigating the circumstances, so please get in touch if you saw what happened or have dash-cam footage showing the car at around the time of this incident.

“Anyone with information can contact the police on 101, quoting incident 173 of 21 August 2022, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
