A 24-year-old woman who sadly died following a collision in the Thurcroft area of Rotherham on Monday 14 October has today been formally named as Clare Turner.

Her family have released this picture of her and have asked for their privacy to be respected at this difficult time.

At 2.15pm on Monday 14 October,  it is reported that a black Vauxhall Vectra was travelling along Kingsforth Lane, Thurcroft, from Cumwell Lane.

Near to Kingsforth Lane Fisheries, it is believed the Vectra lost control and was involved in a collision with a tree.

Clare suffered fatal injuries and was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. Her family are being supported by specialist officers.
Clare’s family have paid tribute to her: “Clare was a wonderful bubbly girl who was much loved by her family and friends. We are devastated that she has been taken from us so early. She had so much to look forward to and she will be missed by everyone who knew her.”

Enquiries are ongoing into the circumstances surrounding the collision and any witnesses are asked to email investigating officer PC James Durkin from our Serious Collisions Unit on James.Durkin@southyorks.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting incident number 479 of 14 October 2019.
