Police can confirm a man died following the collision in the A1 near Markham Moor Services at around 12.30am yesterday (Thursday 5 October).

A van left the road and collided with a stationary Land Rover in a layby.

The van driver, a foreign national who has not yet been formally identified, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The Land Rover driver, a man, suffered minor injuries.

The collision led to the closure of the northbound road between North Muskham and Tuxford for several hours.

Officers are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision or the moments before or after it, and anyone with dash-cam footage, to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident number 14 of 5 October 2017.

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
