A woman in her 90s who died after driving the wrong way on the A47 and colliding head-on with another car has still not been named a week on.

The tragic head-on crash occurred on the Soke Parkway on Tuesday morning last week (October 13) and left the driver of the other car in Peterborough City Hospital with serious injuries.

Both women are from the Peterborough area and the deceased was said to have been celebrating her birthday on the day of the crash.

A large emergency presence including an air ambulance rushed to the scene of the collision while the road in both directions was closed from about the time that the incident occurred until around 4pm.

The emergency services were called to the parkway near the city hospital shortly after 11am.

Cambridgeshire police confirmed that formal identification has not yet taken place of the deceased but said that her details had been passed on to the coroner.

The coroner’s office said the woman was not expected to be named today.
