Investigation begins into Bradford road traffic incident

Published: 14 Jun 2022

We are carrying out an independent investigation into the involvement of West Yorkshire Police (WYP) prior to a road traffic collision on the M606 near the Chain Bar roundabout, Bradford, at around 10.45pm on Monday 13 June.

We were notified by WYP after the collision and an independent investigation declared at 12.51am today (Tuesday 14 June).

We understand that a Ford Transit van failed to stop for police before it was involved in a collision with a taxi after the van entered the M606 on the wrong side of the carriageway.

IOPC investigators are attending the scene and the police post incident procedure. We have begun to gather information and our investigation is at an early stage.
