SIX men have been arrested following a car crash on Sunday in which a young woman died.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident, which happened at 3.30pm at a road junction in north Halifax.
The woman, aged 25, was a front seat passenger in a Vauxhall Astra travelling across the A647 Boothtown Road from Chester Road when it was involved in a collision with a black Seat Leon.
She was pronounced dead at the scene. The male driver, 26, and two passengers – a girl aged seven and a boy aged four – were taken to local hospitals with serious injuries.
The occupants of the Seat, four men aged 19, 20, 21 and 27, have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
Police have also arrested and charged two men, aged 22 and 23, who were in a blue X-registered Mercedes seen to be driving with the Seat before the collision. Officers are keen to trace the driver of the Mercedes.
Detective Chief Inspector Scott Wood of the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, said: “This was a young family going about their daily business but who have suffered the ultimate tragedy.
“Two young children have been left without a mum and I would appeal to anyone who saw this incident or who knows the whereabouts of the Mercedes to get in contact.”
Anyone with any information, should contact the police on 101.
