POLICE have named a 66-year-old woman who died after being hit by a car as she pushed a pram along a pavement in Horsforth.

The incident happened close to the Brownlee Arms pub last week when a Volkswagen Tiguan failed to negotiate a bend.

Susan Allan was given emergency treatment at the scene but was pronounced dead a short time later.

A ten-month-old baby girl who was in the pram was taken to Leeds General Infirmary with minor injuries. A dog that Mrs Allan was walking was also injured and was taken to the vets for treatment.

Police are appealing for witnesses following the fatal road traffic collision which happened at about 3.30pm on Wednesday, December 20. The Tiguan was travelling north along Church Avenue, in Horsforth, and had just passed the junction with Long Row, outside the Brownlee Arms, when it failed to negotiate the bend and was involved in a collision with Mrs Allan who was on the offside footpath.

The driver of the Tiguan, a 43-year-old man, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He was later released under investigation.

Officers investigating the incident want to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision or who saw the movements of the Tiguan in the time leading up to the collision.

Anyone with information is asked to contact West Yorkshire Police Major Collision Enquiry Team via 101 quoting reference 13170593470.
