A woman in her 90s who died following a four-car crash between two Northamptonshire villages has been named as Pauline Hart.

Mrs Hart, aged 92, died following the road traffic collision on the A5199 between Spratton and Creaton on Thursday.

A Northamptonshire Police spokesman said: “She has been formally identified as Pauline Hart, aged 92, of Well Lane, Guilsborough.”

Mrs Hart was a passenger in a grey Volkswagen Polo that collided with three vehicles.

She was taken to University Hospital Coventry where she died at 3am on Saturday.

The crash happened at 12.20pm when the Volkswagen Polo, which was driven by a 91-year-old man from Guilsborough, was travelling towards Creaton when. For reasons as yet unknown, the vehicle veered onto the opposite side of the road and collided with three vehicles.

The Polo struck the side of a Scania lorry, then a black Hyundai Getz, before colliding with a BMW X3.

The 91-year-old was taken to hospital in a critical condition.

A spokesman for the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance said: “The woman was a front seat passenger in a car which had a significant impact with another vehicle.

“On the arrival of the crew, it was obvious that the patient required immediate medical attention. She was rapidly extricated from the vehicle by the fire and rescue service and was given medication to help with blood-clotting.

“She was then anaesthetised by the air ambulance doctor before being quickly flown to University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire for further care.”

The Hyundai driver, a 26-year-old woman from Kingsthorpe, was treated at hospital for minor injuries.

The BMW driver, a 51-year-old man from Leicester, and the lorry driver, a 65-year-old man from Kettering, were uninjured.
