A woman has died following a crash which happened near Oundle.

Jeka Howley, 56, of The Dell, Peterborough, died after a road traffic collision on the A605, near Oundle, on Tuesday, November 5, at about 10.15pm.

Mrs Howley was driving northbound in a yellow Vauxhall Tigra, in front of a silver Peugeot 206 which was being driven by a man.

A black Ford Fiesta was being driven by a 20-year-old man in the opposite direction and was also involved in the collision.

Officers from the Collision Investigation Team believe another vehicle may have been involved in the collision, but failed to stop.

Sergeant Nick Gray, said: “We believe a series of cars and possibly a motorbike overtook Mrs Howley and the silver Peugeot in the direction of Peterborough, shortly before the collision.

“We would like to speak to those motorists as they may have valuable information that may be able to assist our investigation.”

Officers will be returning to the A605 tonight (Tuesday), a week on from the collision, to stop motorists and ask if they were travelling on the same road on November 5.

Mrs Howley died on Friday night at University Hospital Coventry.

The man driving the Ford Fiesta was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with serious injuries.

The man driving the Peugeot was not injured in the collision.
