South Yorkshire Police launch further appeal following the death of a 25-year-old man from Barnsley

Police are appealing for witnesses after the death of a 25-year-old man on the M1 last year.

Pedestrian, Jake Glover-Brown, from Barnsley, died after a collision with a black Mercedes CLA on the M1 Northbound last October.

Officers are now appealing for the occupants of a small hatchback vehicle, possibly a Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa or Astra size, light in colour that was in the area at the time of the collision.

New information into the investigation of the crash has led officers to believe that the car had broken down at the scene moments after the fatal collision.

The police believe the car had pulled over on the motorway for a short period of time with its hazard lights on, but the occupants did not leave the vehicle.

Five people (three men, one teenager and one woman), aged between 16-years-old and 50-years-old, were arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. The 16-year-old boy was released under investigation and the other four were bailed pending further enquiries.

South Yorkshire Police are urging for anyone that owns a car similar to the description that was M1 Northbound at 11.50pm on October 18 last year, or has any information, which could help the officers on this case, to call 101, quoting the incident number 1011 of 18 October 2019.
