POLICE have launched an appeal for witnesses and dash-cam footage after two men were killed in an M1 collision.

South Yorkshire Police’s Serious Collisions Unit is appealing for information or footage after two men were killed on Sunday evening (April 4).

At 7.29pm, a white Volkswagen Golf was travelling northbound on the M1 between junction 30 and 31.

The driver of the Golf is believed to have lost control, causing the car to leave the carriageway and collide with the barrier and several trees before coming to rest on its roof.

Two men from Sheffield, aged 22 and 20, were pronounced dead at the scene.

No other vehicles are believed to have been involved.

A spokesperson for South Yorkshire Police said: “Both families have now been informed and are being supported by trained officers.

“We are asking any witnesses to the collision, or anyone who witnessed the Golf prior, to get in touch.

“We are especially keen to hear from anyone with dash-cam footage which captured the Golf travelling along the M1 between 7pm and 7.29pm.

“If you can help, please contact 101 quoting incident number 873 of April 4.

“Any footage can be emailed through to enquiries@southyorks.pnn.police.uk with the incident number listed in the subject line.”
