A police investigation has been launched after a vehicle failed to stop at the scene of a crash on the M1 last night.

Two lanes on the motorway were closed after a black Honda Jazz rolled onto its roof following a collision with another vehicle just before J9.

According to firefighters, three people were cut from the car and taken to hospital as a result of the crash which took place at shortly after 10.30pm.

Police confirmed that a woman in her late 20s suffered slight injuries in the crash and was trapped in the car.

Fire crews from Redbourn and Markyate attended the scene, along with police officers who closed the inside lane of the road between J10 and J9.

An investigation is now under way.
