Road death man’s inquest adjourned

Have your say

THE widow of a 30-year-old Doncaster man killed in a car collision earlier this month has been given the go-ahead to arrange his funeral.

Hayley Cook, of Stonehill Rise, Scawthorpe, has been granted a cremation certificate after Doncaster Coroner Nicola Mundy adjourned the inquest.

Ms Mundy was told Craig Cook, a welder, was found lying in the carriageway on York Road, Sunnyfields, about 11.30pm on Friday February 4.

PC David Evans said he had suffered fatal injuries and paramedics verified he was dead before his body was taken away.

He had been in collision with a Vauxhall Astra travelling north on the A638 from Doncaster, near Stanley Road, and police have appealed for witnesses.

A post-mortem examination was carried out after Mrs Cook identified her husband’s body, and further tests will be carried out.

Ms Mundy said she would adjourn the inquest to await the autopsy results and a full police investigation.

n THE funeral service for 14-year-old Antonia Browne, one of the victims of a triple fatality near Conisbrough on January 30, was due to take place today at St Peter in Chains RC Church in Chequer Road.
