A THIRTY-EIGHT year old woman who died in a road accident on the A64 near Copmanthorpe last week has been named.

Zaneb Khatoon Khan, from Leeds, was driving a grey Fiat Punto at about 11.25pm last Thursday, when the car hit the central reservation between Copmanthorpe and Bilbrough, overturned and landed in a verge.

Ms Khan suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
