A MAN killed in a road accident has been named.
Self-employed information technology consultant Paul Anthony Meany died when his car was in a head-on crash with a lorry on Wakefield Road, Grange Moor.
Mr Meany, 41, of Beckside Gardens, Waterloo, was married with a 20-year-old daughter.
He died at the scene when his Lexus was in a crash with a lorry between the Grange Moor roundabout and the junction with Paul Lane at 7.40am on Wednesday.
The road is believed to have been covered in loose chippings at the time, after resurfacing work. That will form part of the police investigation.
An inquest into Mr Meany's death will open in Huddersfield next Wednesday.
Meanwhile, police have urged motorists to show more courtesy and compassion when roads are shut after serious accidents.
Pc Phil Shaw, of Huddersfield traffic police, said one or two motorists showed obvious impatience when police diverted them away from the Grange Moor accident scene.
He added: "If we have to close a road it is for a very good reason, to preserve an accident scene so it can be thoroughly investigated.
"Some of the officers at the scene were - to say the least - surprised by some of the comments from one or two motorists who were diverted.
"Most motorists do show compassion and courtesy at accident scenes. We just wish everyone would do so - but these comments seem to be happening more and more," added Pc Shaw.
He went on: "If motorists do come across a serious accident we would urge them to stop and wait until the emergency services arrive, or turn round and go another way.
"Do not drive past the accident, as you may disturb evidence."
