A MAN has died following a crash on the M45 near Rugby this morning.
Emergency services were called to the eastbound M45 at Dunchurch at 4.30am.
An ambulance and a rapid response vehicle were sent to the crash.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When ambulance staff got to the scene they found a car that had struck the central reservation.
“Police officers, who had arrived just before the ambulance, were getting the driver out of the car.
“He was taken onto the ambulance where ambulance staff immediately started advanced life support. The man was taken on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire where medics were on standby.
“Sadly, despite all of the efforts, it was not possible to save the man and he was confirmed dead shortly after arrival.”
The by-pass leading to the M1 is currently closed with a diversion in place.
