A driver who crashed into a central reservation was hit and killed by a van when he walked from his car.

The man, in his 30s, was driving towards Hatfield when his silver Ford Focus crashed on the A414 just north of the Hatfield House exit, at 05:20 GMT.

He got out of his car and a short time later was hit by a silver Mercedes Sprinter van. He died at the scene.

Hertfordshire Police said it wanted to hear from two drivers who avoided the crashed car before the man was killed.
