The woman who shouted the racist abuse was a white female, with long blonde hair, of medium build and aged in her 30s.
Pc David Hall, of the Kirklees Rural Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT), said: “What should have been a basic exchange of insurance information resulted in an unprovoked torrent of racist abuse which was very distressing for the victim.
