A WOMAN who was critically injured in a car crash a week ago has died.

Jane Floweth, 68, from Ilkley, died in hospital yesterday, police have said.

The police hunt continues for a man who fled the scene of the crash, in Low Moor, Bradford, on the evening of Saturday, February 24.

A silver Vauxhall Astra had collided with a blue Honda Jazz near the Guide Post Hotel in Common Lane.

Mrs Floweth had been a passenger in the Honda Jazz. 

Officers have once again asked anyone with information to come forward.

A police spokesman said: "Officers are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the collision after a man was seen fleeing the scene and appeal to anyone who saw either vehicle prior to the incident, who witnessed the collision itself or with any other information to come forward by calling 101 quoting the reference 13180092933.

"Jane’s family request that their privacy be respected at this time."

Earlier this week, residents who live near to where the crash took place said the man who fled the scene was seen running up Low Moor Street and along Hill Top Fold.
