A man has died following an accident on the M42 near Tamworth.
It happened between junctions 10 and 9, Southbound at around 8.00am.
An ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car that rolled over and was up the embankment of the motorway.
“The driver of the car had suffered multiple serious injuries and was in traumatic cardiac arrest. Advanced life support was carried, but unfortunately despite the best efforts of ambulance crews, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.”
The Highways Agency has released a statement following the Crown Prosecution Service accusing it of displaying unclear speed limits on the M42, which could see thousands of motorists let-off for speeding convictions.
We have resolved an issue relating to the font used on speeds signs on our motorways. The signs were always entirely legible and the mandatory speed limit clear. Following queries that suggested that this may not have been, we clarified the issue in November 2012.

The signs, which were located on the motorway west of Coventry, showed the speed limit 'taller and narrower that they should have been', said Crown Prosecution Services.
More than 11,000 motorists may now receive their money back.
