Four men have been arrested after a woman was killed and two children seriously injured in a crash in West Yorkshire.

It happened as the woman in a Vauxhall Astra collided with a black Seat Leon in Halifax at around 3.30pm on Sunday.

The Astra was travelling from Chester Road, crossing the A647 Boothtown Road to go onto Woodlands Road, West Yorkshire Police said.

A spokesman said: “The front seat passenger of the Astra, a 25 year old woman from Halifax, was pronounced dead at the scene.

"The male driver, aged 26, and two passengers - a girl aged seven and a boy aged four - were taken to local hospitals and are said to be seriously injured."

According to one report, the dead woman was the mum of the injured children.

Men aged 19, 20, 21 and 27 from Bradford were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, the spokesman said.

Officers also want to trace the driver of a blue X-registered Mercedes that was seen to be driving with the Seat Leon before the collision.
