Police have appealed for information following the death of a woman in a car crash in Field Head Lane, Drighlington.

A police spokesman said: “At about 11pm on Friday, August 1, a black Vauxhall Astra car travelling towards Bradford was in collision with a white Peugeot Bipper van travelling in the opposite direction.

“The driver of the Astra, a 28-year-old woman, was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The Bipper driver, a 63-year-old man, was taken to hospital with serious injuries, which were not believed to be life-threatening.”

Det Sgt Carole Greaves, of the Major Collision Enquiry Team, said: “Although enquiries are still in their early stages, we believe the Astra might have misjudged a bend which led to it being in collision with the Bipper.”

Anyone who saw either vehicle prior to the collision is asked to contact Det Con 2752 Lowdon at the Major Collision Enquiry Team on 101.
