An inquest has opened into the death of a woman who was travelling in a vehicle involved in a collision on the A16 near Peterborough.  

Christine Crease, 80, was one of two people who died in the incident which happened on April 22.  

At the time, police said a blue Volvo V40 heading north was in collision with a brown Toyota Prius travelling in the opposite direction, near to the “blue bridge” towards Newborough.    

The brown Prius then collided with a red Ford Kuga travelling north.   

Mrs Crease, the passenger in the Volvo, and the driver of the Prius, Mohammad Sarfraz, 56, were pronounced dead at the scene.  

The driver of the Volvo, a man in his 70s, also from Amersham, was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, with serious injuries.   

The status of his condition is not known.      

The Kuga driver, a man in his sixties, from Liverpool, suffered minor injuries.      

David Heming, a senior coroner for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, opened Mrs Crease’s inquest yesterday (May 16). 

At the brief hearing held at Peterborough Town Hall, he said: “I anticipate there are extensive ongoing police investigations concerning the circumstances to this motor vehicle collision. 

“Obviously the likely projectory of the coronial investigation will be wholly dependent on the views of police with regard to any other matters arising during their investigation.” 

Mr Heming added: “I again express my sincerest condolences and sympathy to the family of the deceased.” 

Mrs Crease’s inquest was adjourned for a date to be fixed.  

An inquest was opened into Mr Sarfraz’s death on May 2.
