FATAL: The wreckage after the crash on the A19 near Dalton Piercy

POLICE are repeating an appeal to trace a van driver who may be able to help with an investigation into a collision that caused the death of a female international rugby player.

Sportswoman Keri Holdsworth, 36, from the Edinburgh area, died in the incident that happened at around 4.30pm on Friday, June 13, on the A19 at the junction with Dalton Piercy, near Hartlepool.

She was driving a Renault Clio when the smash, which also involved a dark blue BMW 5 series estate, happened.

A spokeswoman for Cleveland Police said officers are still keen to speak to the driver of a light coloured or white van which may have been using the Dalton junction at the time.

It is believed that the van was within the central reservation area at the Dalton junction, looking to travel northbound on the A19.

The driver, who may hold vital information to the investigation, is asked to contact PC Mark Pearson, from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit, on the non-emergency 101 number, quoting reference number 100435.
