It is believed that the crash was caused after a small silver car overtook a lorry, and police want to speak to the lorry driver.

Investigating officer PC Amy Boughton, of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said: “From our initial enquiries we believe this collision may have been as a result of another car, possibly silver and small in size, overtaking a lorry, which resulted in the Peugeot and Volkswagen colliding.
