A WOMAN killed in an horrific road crash was a mum from Brighouse.
Petra Ann Dearnley, 28, was killed when she was thrown out of the Vauxhall Nova, which hit a pub car park wall in Elland late on December 23.
She had lived in Brighouse for the last nine years and was the mother of two sons - nine-year-old Steven and Ryan, who is just two months' old.
The tragedy outside the Colliers Arms at Park Road, Elland, at 11pm also claimed the life of 24-year-old Tracy Marie Easton, of Siddal, Halifax. She was seven months' pregnant.
Petra was born and brought up in Lepton, attending schools in the village, before moving on to King James' School, Almondbury.
After leaving school she worked for a time at Bon Marché in Kirkheaton and later in the kitchens at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
Petra's partner, Stephen Maloney, 23, was a front seat passenger in the car and suffered a shattered leg and other injuries.
He is recovering in Calderdale Royal Hospital.
The driver, a 29-year-old man, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of drink-driving.
He has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
Petra's father, Mr Alan Dearnley, said: "It's been a very rough last few days, very rough. I don't think it has hit Steven. He knows his mum has gone, but I think the reality will get him at the funeral."
He said the driver was a former workmate of Mr Maloney's.
"He walked away without a scratch or a bruise," said Mr Dearnley.
The car the man was driving had overtaken a fire engine from Brighouse moments earlier and horrified firefighters watched as the tragedy unfolded before them.
When the car hit the wall, the force of the impact flung Petra, Tracy and another woman out through the shattered back window.
The woman who survived was taken to Calderdale Royal Hospital.
She has not been named. Her injuries are not life-threatening.
Mr Maloney was trapped in the wreckage and had to be freed by firefighters.
