Avon and Somerset Police said in a statement issued today (Friday, November 19): “A 35-year-old woman from Bristol has sadly died in hospital following the serious collision in the Newfoundland Circus area of the city earlier this month.

“The woman had been driving a Honda Jazz, which was struck by a VW Tiguan at the junction of the A4044 and A4032, at just after midnight on Friday, November 5.

“Our thoughts are with her family at this difficult time.

“A 19-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy remain released under investigation in connection with our ongoing investigation.”

Avon and Somerset Police said at the time that the two males were arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to stop, driving while unfit through drugs and taking a motor vehicle without consent.

The 35-year-old woman was rushed to hospital in a life-threatening condition following the crash, and a 33-year-old man in the car with her was also injured.

Emergency services raced to the scene of the crash and closed all the main roads leading to the normally-busy junction.

That meant the M32 was closed at Junction 1 for Easton and St Pauls, as was Bond Street at the Bearpit and Temple Way at the Old Market roundabout until just after 9am.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) said it has launched an investigation into the actions of Avon and Somerset Police as the crash happened following a police chase.
