| February 2, 2016

A man in his thirties was killed in a fatal collision on the A40 Western Avenue at Denham during the early hours of Tuesday 2nd February 2016.

At around 3.00am a white Skoda Octavia was travelling on the Southbound carriage way of the M40 near Denham. At the point where the M40 merges into the A40 the Skida collided with a heavy goods vehicle which was parked in a lay-by.

The driver of Skoda, a man in thirties who was the single occupant of the vehicle, died at the scene. The driver of the lorry was uninjured.

The road was closed in the area while emergency services attended the scene. During the morning rush hour one lane remained closed on the A40 Southbound towards central London and the entrance slip road onto the Southbound A40 at the Denham roundabout was also closed.

Widespread congestion built up in the area with tailbacks on the Southbound carriageway of the A40 stretching for several miles.
