A man has been left fighting for his life after being hit by a car on the A1 slip road near Stevenage.

Around ten to nine last night (Friday, November 15) a blue Fiat Punto that was travelling south bound on the A1 motorway.

It left the carriage way at junction eight (Stevenage North/Hitchin).

As the car approached the junction's roundabout it hit the man who police say was standing in the slip road.

He suffered serious injuries including a significant head trauma and was taken to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge where he remains in a critical condition.

We would like to speak to anyone who thinks they may have seen either the collision itself or the pedestrian, prior to the collision taking place.
