THE 91-YEAR-OLD woman from St Albans who was involved in a car crash near Leeds last week and died from her injuries has been named.

Margaret Crystal Coles of King Harry Lane was sitting in the passenger seat of a silver Honda Jazz car when it collided with a Rover 25 just after 11.30am last Saturday in Pool-in-Wharfedale, a village just north of Leeds.

With the driver of the car, an 89-year-old man also from St Albans, she was taken to Leeds General Infirmary (LGI) in a critical condition and died on Wednesday afternoon (8).

The driver of the car is still in hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. The driver and passenger of the Rover, a 54 year-old man and a 49-year-old woman from North Yorkshire, were taken to LGI with injures that weren't life-threatening.

An inquest into the death was opened and adjourned at the Coroners Office and Court in Leeds on Friday.
