He said Mrs Jaworski-Green, a lab technician who lived at Blenheim Chase in Scissett, was driving as silver Kia in the direction of Wakefield when it was involved in the crash with a silver BMW being driven in the opposite direction, towards West Bretton.

DI Conroy said the other vehicle "negotiated a right hand bend and crossed over, entering the opposing carriageway, travelling in her [Kate's] line and collided head on with her vehicle".

Mrs Jaworski-Green was taken to Leeds General Infirmary with serious injuries and died two days later, at 10.05pm on January 29.

A provisional post-mortem report gave the cause of death as serious injuries.

The driver of the other vehicle was seriously injured.

DI Conroy said investigations into the incident were ongoing.

Coroner David Hinchliff adjourned the inquest pending further inquiries.
