South Wales Police have reappealed for information about a head-on collision in January which killed a woman.

Kathryn Bartlett, 44, from Aberdare, died in the crash on Friday 13 January near the A470 Abercynon roundabout in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

Her red Vauxhall Astra was in a collision with a white Peugeot van.

Police want to trace the drivers of a small, white, three-door hatchback vehicle and an articulated lorry with a tractor unit who may be witnesses.

The collision happened shortly after 06:40 GMT in the vicinity of the junction with the B4275, an area known as quarter mile junction.

The van, which was travelling from Abercynon roundabout towards Aberdare on the A4059 carriageway, was in collision with Ms Bartlett's Astra which was travelling in the opposite direction.

Police said both the hatchback vehicle and the lorry were seen in the area at the time.

Collision investigator Steve Haigh said: "If you were the driver or passenger of either of these vehicles, please contact the police as you may be able to help with our enquiries."

South Wales Police have asked anyone with information to contact the Roads Policing Unit on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
