Woman who died in Blyth crash named as 21-year-old Hannah Jane Inman

A woman who died after a two-vehicle collision in Blyth on Tuesday has been named as 21-year-old Hannah Jane Inman. At 8.20pm on Tuesday police received a report of a collision between a yellow Skoda Fabia and a heavy goods vehicle (HVG) on Coniston Road. Emergency services attended the scene and the male driver and female passenger of the Skoda were taken to hospital.

Ms Inman was later pronounced dead. Neither the 22-year-old driver of the Skoda or the 38-year-old driver of the HGV were seriously injured in the collision. In a statement released on Thursday Hannah’s family said: “Hannah you shining star, you’ll be sadly missed.

“You were bright, beautiful and had a bubbly personality. Your kindness touched everyone who ever met you. “Sleep tight angel, love you always!”

A 22-year-old man arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving has since been released under investigation. An investigation into the circumstances around the collision is ongoing and police are continuing to appeal for witnesses to get in touch. Sergeant Dave Roberts, of Northumbria Police’s Motor Patrols Department, said: “I am aware that there were a number of people in the area and that there are a number of people who saw the collision.

“We are focused on a thorough investigation, looking at every possible detail as it could assist in providing answers as to what happened.

“It is possible that the yellow Skoda may have been in the area for some time prior to the collision and would ask anyone who saw the car to get in touch.”
