A couple killed in a motorbike crash near Tadcaster last week have been named.

The couple who died, following the collision on Wednesday 25 August 2010, were 40 year old Dean and 37 year old Helen Louise Slater from Thornton in Bradford.

The investigation into the circumstances which led to the collision remain ongoing and a number of vital witnesses are being sought.

Traffic Sergeant Julian Pearson, who is leading the enquiry, said:

I am particularly interested in hearing from two joggers who were on the A659 in the area of Newton Kyme and the driver of a Morris Minor which was entering Tadcaster on the A659 outside the primary school. The joggers and the car driver had to take evasive action to avoid being struck by members of the group of motorcyclists.”

Anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the manner of riding of the group of motorcycles, especially the joggers and drivers of the Morris Minor, is asked to contact TS Julian Pearson on 0845 60 60 24 7  quoting reference number 12100145983.
