A 52-year-old woman who died after a South Yorkshire collision at the weekend has been named as Hasina Idris Mohamed.

At around 4.40pm on Saturday August 6 it is reported a silver Ford Focus was travelling along Doncaster Road toward Rotherham town centre when the vehicle and Miss Mohamed were involved in a collision close to Clifton Park.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Her family are receiving support from officers and have asked their privacy is respected during this difficult time.

The 51-year-old man driving the Ford Focus was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has been bailed pending further inquiries.

Sergeant Steve Askham from Serious Collisions Unit said: “Our condolences are with Miss Mohamed’s family at this sad time.

“While our investigation is in its early stages, at this time it does appear that there were no aggravating factors connected to this incident and we believe that this was a road traffic collision with tragic consequences.

“I’d ask that the public are considerate when posting about this incident on social media to prevent any further distress to Miss Mohamed’s family.”
