A village road was closed to traffic for more than six hours after a crash.
Police were called to what a spokesman described as a "serious road traffic collision" on the A582, in Enderby, at just after 5am on Saturday.
A section of the road was closed between the Next clothing headquarters, in Mill Hill, and the Leicester Lane junction, by Enderby Parish Church, as accident investigators examined the scene.
Traffic was diverted until the road was reopened at 11.06am.
Police would not reveal any more details about the incident.
