UPDATED: M40 reopens after fatal crash as victim confirmed a man in his 20s
A Warwickshire Police spokeswoman said investigating officers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the collision. They have been urged to 101, quoting incident 9 of 14th January.
Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, the doctor from the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and the MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a car on the embankment at the side of the carriageway that had suffered considerable damage.
“The man was found on the carriageway. Sadly there was nothing that could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
“The northbound carriageway is still closed at present and will remain so for sometime for investigations to continue.”
No-one was hurt in a five vehicle pile-up near junction 15 of the M40 on Monday morning.
