First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

A man and a woman arrested in connection with the death of a motorcyclist have been released on bail, Police revealed this morning.

The pair had been detained yesterday after a black car believed to have been involved in the fatal crash that took the life of La-Nae Woodley in the early hours of Saturday.

A third man arrested in connection with the hit-and-run accident was at Magistrates' Court today faced with a raft of charges relating to Ms Woodley's death.

This morning detectives confirmed that the two other people arrested had been released on police bail while the investigation into the crash continued.

Sergeant Jason Smith called on anyone who witnessed the crash to come forward and help detectives advance their inquiries.

“Right now we are following some very promising leads in relation to this matter,” he said at a press conference this morning.

“CCTV has played a critical role in driving this investigation and a number of actions have come out of viewing this footage.”

He added: “We are interested in speaking to anyone who can help us identify the movements of the white van and the black car in the early morning hours after and before the collision.

“We need the public to be bold and come forward to help the Woodley family get some closure.

“A number of people were at the collision scene and we have yet to hear from those persons. We are imploring those people to make contact with us.”

Chief Inspector Na'Imah Astwood from the Serious Crime Unit said that a family liaison officer had appointed to help the Woodley family in the aftermath of the crash.

Ms Woodley was driving along Middle Road in Warwick with a pillion passenger when a white van collided with the bike at the junction with Cobbs Hill Road.

According to Police, the driver of the van then left the scene before a black car drove through the crash scene hitting Ms Woodley.

The 22-year-old of Friswell's Hill was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead, while her passenger was treated for cuts to her leg.

To contact Sgt Smith, members of the public can call 247 1739 or e-mail him at jsmith2@bps.bm.
