The road was closed for nearly 12 hours and it took nearly seven hours for motorists trapped in their vehicles between the junctions to be turned around.

Crash investigators revealed following the smash the BMW driver had fled the scene and Northamptonshire Police issued an appeal on Monday (May 9) for information regarding the location of 24-year-old Martin Doran.

A spokesperson said: “Officers would like to speak to Doran in connection with causing serious injury by dangerous driving after a collision which occurred on the A14 on July 16 last year, failing to stop, perverting the course of justice, and driving whilst disqualified.”

Doran, who is also wanted on recall to prison, is known to travel throughout the UK and Ireland and has links to Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Birmingham, Cheshire, London, Buckinghamshire, and Leicestershire.

Anyone who sees Doran, or has information about his whereabouts, should call the police non-emergency number 101 using incident number 21000399034 or, alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 0800 555 111
