M1 motorway delays after driver killed in crash
A man has been killed in a crash on the M1 in West Yorkshire.
Police said a Chevrolet car and a Ford Transit van collided while travelling on the northbound carriageway near junction 42, at about 12:40 BST.
A man in his 60s, who was driving the car, died at the scene. A female passenger, also in her 60s, was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
Drivers were being warned of delays as the motorway was closed at junction 42, with a diversion in place.
Police said it was believed the car may have been driven slowly, or was stationary, before the crash due to a fault with the vehicle.
Witnesses are being asked to come forward.
