Police investigating a fatal collision on Stanningley Road have released details of the woman who died in the incident – and issued a renewed appeal for witnesses. 

Athira Anilkumar Laly Kumari, aged 28, was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision, which occurred at the junction of Stanningley Road and Cockshott Lane just before 8.30am on Wednesday (22 February).

Athira was one of two pedestrians who suffered serious injuries in the collision, which involved a black Volkswagen Golf and caused damage to a bus stop.

The second pedestrian, a man in his forties, is continuing to recover in hospital.

The Golf driver, a 25-year-old woman, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has since been released on bail as enquiries continue into the collision.

Enquiries by The Major Collision Enquiry Team have established that the Golf had travelled on the Armley Gyratory before it drove down Stanningley Road towards Bradford.

Anyone who has footage of the vehicle prior to the collision, or who can assist the investigation, can contact the Major Collision Enquiry Team on 101 or by using the 101LiveChat facility on the West Yorkshire Police website. The log reference is 290 of 22 February.
