A 28-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, after a man in his 40s died in a crash on the A505 near Hitchin last night.
Shortly before 11.30pm yesterday, a grey Toyota Prius and a silver Ford Mondeo were involved in the collision.
Herts police have said that it is believed that the Mondeo, for reasons still being investigated, may have been travelling in the wrong direction on the Luton to Hitchin carriageway.
The driver of the Toyota - a man in his 40s - suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. The male driver of the Ford has been taken to the Luton and Dunstable Hospital for further treatment.
Sgt Tim Davies - from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit - said: “We would like to speak to anyone who saw or has dash cam footage of this incident or the events leading up to it. In particular, anyone who saw the Ford which was reportedly travelling in the wrong direction on the carriageway.”
