Man bailed following fatal Wood Road collision

A man arrested in connection with the death of a Lower Gornal woman following a collision on Friday (22 September) has been bailed.

Vikki Jones, 30, was driving along Wood Road, when her car was involved in a collision with another vehicle. Despite the best efforts of medical staff, she sadly died.

An 11-year-old girl, who was also in the car at the time, remains in hospital with arm injuries but is expected to make a full physical recovery.

A 21-year-old man arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving has been released on police bail.

A 17-year-old boy arrested for the same offence has been released without charge.

Our thoughts are with the family of the woman who sadly lost her life; specialist officers are supporting them at this difficult time.

Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101 or email

Alternatively people can pass information on anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.
