A Toyota Corolla collided with a Ford Fiesta on the motorway’s westbound carriageway near junction 15 for Swindon, Wiltshire, at around 11pm last night. A 27-year-old man, who was driving the Toyota, has now died of his injuries.

The man’s family, from Cirencester, Gloucestershire, have been informed and are being supported by police.

The driver of the Ford was rushed to hospital but their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

The motorway was closed for around 12 hours after the crash, reports Berkshire Live, as police investigated the collision.

Drivers left at junction 13 for Newbury, Berkshire, and were diverted along the A4 westbound and via Marlborough, Wiltshire, to rejoin the motorway at junction 15.

A Wiltshire Police spokesperson said: “The driver of the Ford was taken to hospital for treatment for their injuries, which are not described as serious or life-threatening at this stage.

“The road reopened at 12.10pm after collision investigation work was carried out.
