A MAN suffered life-threatening injuries when he was hit by a car after breaking down on the M40.

It happened between Warwick Services and junction 12 at around 2.50am on Sunday (March 31).

The 25-year-old, together with a 26-year-old woman, pulled over and got out of their car on the hard shoulder where they were both hit.

The man is described as in a serious but stable condition in hospital. The woman suffered minor leg injuries. She was treated in hospital and has since been discharged.

PC Matt Morrall said: “An investigation into the collision is underway and we have spoken to a number of people who were in the area at the time.

“In order to help establish how the collision occurred, we’d like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the vehicle pull over onto the hard shoulder.

“Also, if any motorists have dashcam footage that could assist with our enquiries, I would appeal for them to come forward.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
