PO­LICE have named a woman who died in a car crash in Tar­leton on Sun­day as Ag­nieszka Ce­cot, 37, of South­port.

They are con­tin­u­ing to urge wit­nesses to come for­ward with any in­for­ma­tion.

The col­li­sion hap­pened shortly be­fore 5.30am on Sun­day, Jan­uary 29 at the junc­tion of South­port New Road and Black­gate Lane on the A565 in Tar­leton.

Ms Ce­cot was driv­ing a Rover 75 when she lost con­trol on a slight left hand bend and the car col­lided with street signs and a tree.

Fire crews cut her from the car and she was treated by paramedics at the scene.

Ms Ce­cot was then taken by am­bu­lance to the Royal Pre­ston Hospi­tal but died a short time later.

Her fam­ily have been in­formed and are be­ing sup­ported by spe­cially trained of­fi­cers.

The road was closed for about two hours while crews worked to clear the wreck­age.

Po­lice had is­sued warn- ings about icy con­di­tions on the road on Sun­day morn­ing, but it is not yet known whether that was a fac­tor in the ac­ci­dent.

Of­fi­cers say that they are par­tic­u­larly keen to speak to the driver of a for­eign reg­is­tered lorry who stopped at the scene to of­fer as­sis­tance.

Sgt Nigel Ralph­son, of the road polic­ing unit, said: “This was a se­ri­ous col­li­sion which has sadly cost a woman her life.

“I would ap­peal for any wit­nesses, or anyone with in­for­ma­tion, to con­tact po­lice on 101 quot­ing log num­ber 0329 of Sun­day, Jan­uary 29.”
