An elderly woman who died four days after a collision at Perranarworthal has today been named as a pensioner from the Lizard area.

Barbara Hoare, 79, was the front-seat passenger of the Vauxhall died at the Royal Cornwall Hospital on April 3, but has only be identified publicly by police today, following a renewed appeal for information.

Her family has asked for privacy at this time.

Mrs Hoare, who lived on the Lizard Peninsula, had been the front-seat passenger in a blue Vauxhall Meriva that was involved in a collision with a silver Audi A5 at the junction of Cove Hill with the A39 at Perranarworthal.

The crash took place at around 12.40pm on Saturday, March 30.

Last Thursday police asked for a number of people who stopped at the scene of the crash to come forward, as they continue to investigate what happened.

In particular, officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Team at Bodmin would like to hear from a female doctor, a veterinary nurse and the occupants of a small red car that may have been directly behind the Vauxhall at the time of the collision.

These people, or anyone with information about the incident, are urged to call police on 101, or email, quoting log 397 of 30/03/2019.
