Woman (43) dies following motorway collision

by Admin

A 43-year-old woman who was involved in a collision on the M1 earlier this week has sadly died in hospital.

At around 6.30am on Wednesday (5 February) emergency services were called to the southbound carriageway of the M1, following a collision between junctions 31 and 32. 

It was reported that a black Vauxhall Corsa being driven by the 43-year-old woman was involved in a collision with a maroon DAF HGV.

It’s believed the Corsa collided with the central barrier and a subsequent collision between the car, a yellow Volvo HGV and a silver Renault Trafic occurred. 

The 43-year-old woman was taken to hospital, where she sadly died yesterday (Friday). No one else was injured. 

The woman has been named as Nicola Raistrick, described her as a ‘loving Mum, Nanna and niece. She was kind, caring and thoughtful. She is loved by many and will be sadly missed’.

Her family are being supported by specially trained officers and ask that their privacy is respected at this difficult time. 

Officers are still keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened, or who has dashcam footage which could assist the inquiry.

If you can help, please call 101 quoting incident number 115 of 5 February 2020. You can submit dashcam footage via email to enquiries@southyorks.pnn.police.uk.
