Woman dies following collision on M65

A woman seriously injured in a collision on the M65 on Wednesday, has died.

Police were called at 7pm following a report of a collision between three vehicles on the Eastbound carriageway between junctions two and three.

A Peugeot 208 overtook a Mercedes Atego HGV before losing control and colliding with the barrier. It then re-entered the carriageway and collided with a number of vehicles.

The passenger of the Peugeot, a woman in her 30s, suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital but died from her injuries.

Her family is being supported by police.

The driver of the Peugeot, a man in his 40s, and a child passenger suffered less serious injuries.

Occupants of the other vehicles were uninjured.

Sgt Phil Baxendale, of the Specialist Operations Road Policing Unit, said: “Very sadly this collision has now resulted in a woman losing her life and I would continue to appeal for any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police, or anyone with dashcam footage, to come forward and speak to us.”

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting log 1217 of March 13 or email [email protected]
