Liverpool man dies in M6 car and lorry crash
A man from Liverpool has died after a crash between a car and lorry on the M6.
Emergency services rushed to reports of a crash involving a Seat Ibiza and a Mercedes Actros HGV on the southbound carriageway of the motorway at around 1am this morning (July 1).
Lancashire Police have now confirmed the driver of the Seat, a man from Liverpool in his 20s, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The HGV driver was not seriously injured in the crash, which happened between junctions 28 and 27 at Leyland.
The incident closed the carriageway for several hours this morning, but has since reopened.
Sgt David Hurst, of Lancashire Police’s tactical operations, said: “This collision has resulted in a man losing his life and my thoughts are with his loved ones at this extremely distressing time.
“We are now working to establish the full circumstances of the collision and I would ask any witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage which could assist us with our enquiries to please get in touch.”
