An investigation is continuing following a fatal collision on the A1 Great North Road in the early hours of this morning (Monday 5 September).
Shortly before 3am, a report was received that a car – a silver BMW 5 Series estate – had left the northbound carriageway close to the Ram Jam service station and collided with a tree.
Officers, assisted by colleagues from Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire, attended but the driver – a 30-year-old man – died at the scene.
The road is expected to be closed for most of the morning while further enquiries are carried out.
PC Adam Wilson, from the force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) said: “Our investigation is very much in its early stages and I’d like to speak to anyone who was travelling along the A1 earlier this morning.
“I’m particularly keen to speak to any motorists with a dashcam in in their vehicle as well as anyone who saw the silver BMW prior to the collision occurring. Any information you’re able to provide could be of great help.”
