Crash investigators are appealing for witnesses.

A Northamptonshire Police spokesman said: "The Range Rover Velor was travelling towards Deanshanger when it was in collision with the rear of a white Fiat Doblo van.

"It then crossed the carriageway and collided with a silver Ford Transit van, causing it to roll several times past three vehicles before colliding with a silver Audi A6."

It is understood the Range Rover had failed to stop for Thames Valley Police officers and the incident has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

The Transit driver, a man in his 40s from Warwickshire, also sustained serious injuries and was taken to Milton Keynes Hospital. The Fiat driver was treated for minor injuries.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have dash-cam footage of the actual collision or any of the vehicles prior to the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615 or Northamptonshire Police on 101 quoting reference number 377 of 28/02/22.
