A WOMAN who died following a road accident in Bradford has been named by police today.

Janet Molloy, 51, of Rookes Lane, Norwood Green, died from serious injuries after she was in collision with a Toyota IQ2 on the A58 Whitehall Road, Wyke, close to the Wyke Lion pub at about 1.10am on Sunday, April 24.

The Toyota IQ2 was being driven along Huddersfield Road, towards Bradford, when it was involved in a collision with Mrs Molloy at the junction, known locally as the Hellfire Crossroads.

A 19-year-old male driver is assisting the police with their investigation, a West Yorkshire Police spokesman confirmed today.

Neighbours and councillors for Norwood Green paid tribute to Mrs Molloy, sending their sympathies to her family and friends after the tragedy.

Cllr Graham Hall (Con, Hipperholme and Lightcliffe) said Bradford and Calderdale Council may now need to review road safety measures on the road where the incident took place.

He said: "I'm very upset about it as I'm sure everybody is who has heard about it.

"The road near the Wyke Lion pub is a very busy stretch of road.

"Accidents on that road may be something that Bradford and Calderdale Council can look at to try and stop this type of incident from happening again.

"We obviously don't know the circumstances surrounding the incident yet.

"Fifty one is a relatively young age. It is just very, very sad that this has happened.

"My sympathies go out to her friends and family as well."

Cllr David Kirton (Con, Hipperholme and Lightcliffe) added: "I was upset to hear the news about Janet Molloy.

"Our hearts go out to her family and friends following this terrible tragedy.

"She will be sorely missed in Norwood Green.

"It is devastating. It's an absolute tragedy."

Michael Bottomley, 72, of Grasmere Grove, Norwood Green, said: "It's a tragedy.

"I did not know her but it's shocking and 51 is no age at all."

Floral tributes have also since been left at the scene of the accident by well-wishers.

West Yorkshire Police released Mrs Molloy's name and picture yesterday and re-appealed for any witnesses to come forward with any information about the incident.

Acting Sergeant Mathew Tunney, from the Major Collision Enquiry Team, of West Yorkshire Police, said: "We are continuing to appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or who saw the vehicle or Mrs Molloy immediately prior to it.

"I am particularly appealing to anyone who saw either the vehicle or the pedestrian, who was thought to be with another person at the time, immediately before the incident to get in contact."

Anyone with information is asked to contact West Yorkshire Police's Major Collision Enquiry Team via 101, quoting log 105 of 24/4.
