A man was rushed to hospital in a critical condition following a crash near South Mimms this morning.

A police spokeswoman said he was rushed to St Mary’s Hospital in a critical condition and officers had spoken to the driver.

“We are particularly keen to speak to a male motorist who stopped at the scene, but left to go to work.

“We are also appealing for any other motorists who were using the road or saw what happened at 5.35am this morning (Wednesday) to come forward so we can establish exactly what happened.

“This information could be vital to our investigation.”
