A road rage incident left a driver with a fractured skull yesterday afternoon.
The man, 54, was cut up by someone in a lime green Corsa while on the M1 northbound at 3.30pm.
Both vehicles left the M1 at junction 11 and stopped at the traffic lights at the end of the slip road.
The driver of the lime green Corsa got out of his car and approached the victim’s car.
The victim also got out and had an argument with the Corsa driver before he was hit over the head with an unknown object.
He went to the Luton and Dunstable Hospital for treatment to a cut to his head and has since been transferred to Addenbrookes Hospital for treatment to a fractured skull.
The driver of the Corsa left the scene driving under the M1 bridge and towards Luton town centre.
PC Olyver Tomlinson said: “The offender is described as a black man, between 30 and 40 years old, with four gold teeth and wore a high visibility jacket and trousers. I would urge anyone who knows a man fitting this description who drives a lime green Corsa to contact the police.
