A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a motorway crash.

Police say they are treating the smash on junction 15 of the M40 near Leamington as a deliberate act.

The crash – which only involved one car – happened at around 2pm on Saturday (October 27) on the slip road on the northbound side.

A 20-year-old man from London, who police say was a passenger in the vehicle, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder before later being bailed.

Two children and a woman were also travelling in the Peugeot 206.

All four suffered minor injuries.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to get in touch and say the man has been bailed until the end of November while investigations continue.

Det Insp Dave Andrews said: “At this time we are treating the collision as a deliberate act. We’re keen to speak to anyone who saw the collision or an altercation between a man and a woman after they exited the car.

“I’d also ask anyone who has dash cam footage of the collision or the moments leading up to it to save it and make contact with police.”

Call police on 101 with information or ring 0800 555 111 to speak to Crimestoppers anonymously.
