Three arrested after pedestrian dies in Dewsbury collision

POLICE are issuing a fresh appeal for information after a 54-year-old woman was killed in a collision in Dewsbury.

The Major Collision and Enquiry Team would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision on Bradford Road, Dewsbury at about 10.10am on Saturday, February 4.

It occurred under the railway bridge near the Lidl supermarket after a white BMW 420 coupe collided with street furniture, a parked van and a 54-year-old pedestrian, who has been named as Hamida Sidat from Batley.

Despite medical attention Mrs Sidat passed away at the scene from her injuries.

Bradford Road was closed for investigation work and re-opened during Saturday afternoon.

Sergeant Carl Quinn, of the Major Collision and Enquiry Team, said: "We are continuing to investigate this fatal collision and are very much continuing to appeal for witnesses.

"I would like to speak with anyone who saw the collision or the manner in which the BMW was being driven in the moments leading up to it.

"Anyone who has information which could assist the investigation is asked to contact the Major Collision and Enquiry Team on 101."

Two 21-year-old men and a 20-year-old man were arrested on Saturday in connection with the investigation on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and have now been bailed pending continuing enquiries.
