A WOMAN has died after her car crashed into a tree in Thurcroft.

The 24-year-old was travelling along Kingsforth Lane, from Cumwell Lane, Hellaby, at 2.15pm yesterday in a black Vauxhall Vectra, a spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Police said.

It is believed the Vectra lost control and collided with a tree near Kingsforth Lane Fisheries, she added.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and her family are receiving support from specially-trained officers.

Enquiries are ongoing into the circumstances surrounding the collision and any witnesses are asked to call 101 quoting incident number 479 of October 14.

Police said they were keen to hear from motorists who may hold dash cam footage of the incident.
