Appeal: Police Appeal To Trace Potential Witness To Fatal Stanningley Collision

Thursday 10 January 2019

Police are appealing for information to trace a driver who may have seen a fatal collision on the Stanningley Bypass last November.

The Major Collision and Enquiry Team (MCET) are appealing to trace the driver of a black Ford Focus which they believe was travelling behind a white Skoda Yeti involved in a fatal collision on the Bradford bound carriageway of Stanningley Bypass near to Richardshaw Lane just before 7pm on Saturday November 24.

Enquiries remain ongoing into the collision which resulted in the death of Mr Jonathan Ball after his Yeti collided with the rear of a broken down DAF tipper truck.

The driver of the truck was not in his vehicle at the time and was not injured.

Detective Sergeant Fiona Hoodless of the Major Collision Enquiry Team, said: “We are continuing to investigate this collision and are particularly keen to trace the driver of a black Ford Focus who we know was travelling behind the Yeti and who may well have witnessed the collision.

“I would ask this driver to come forwards and speak with us as he or she may well have important information which could help the investigation.

“The driver or anyone else with any information who police have not yet spoken to is asked to contact the Major Collision Enquiry Team via 101 quoting log number 1581 of November 24.”
