Two young children who died in a collision on the M62 near Eggborough have been officially named by police today.
They are two-month-old Ahmadeesaa Motara and his sister, Asmaa Motara, aged 19 months, from the West Yorkshire area.
North Yorkshire Police is preparing information for the coroner.
Police are continuing to appeal for information from other motorists, including anyone who witness the crash at around 3.30pm on Sunday 3 September, saw the car in the moments leading up to it or has dashcam footage that may help police investigations.
Traffic Sergeant Hamish Halloway, who attended the incident, said: “I’d like to extend my deepest sympathies to the family involved following this tragic incident.
“Any fatal collision is deeply upsetting for the families involved but it’s impossible to imagine the horrific ordeal this family is currently going through.
“I’d like to thank the members of the public who stopped to help, in particular the driver of a white HGV who was not involved in the collision but gave a massive amount of assistance to the family at the scene.”
If you can help, please contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Hamish Halloway.
