A lorry from AIM Logistics, based in Evesham, was involved in a major crash on the M1 this morning which left eight people dead and four in hospital with serious injuries.

A mini bus and Fed Ex lorry were also involved in the collision near Milton Keynes shortly before 3.15am.

The company says,

We are currently working with the emergency services and investigation team at the scene of the accident and have little news to offer other than our driver was travelling southbound on the M1 at approximately 3am this morning when a collision with a mini bus and Fed Ex lorry occurred.

We will continue to work with the authorities as we try and piece together the pieces of this tragic incident.

My thoughts are with all of those that have so sadly lost their lives and also those that have sustained injuries.

– Ismail Elmagdoub, Director, Aim logistics limited

Two lorry drivers have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. One of those was over the legal drink-drive limit.

Aim Logistics was unable to confirm if their driver was under arrest.
