A COUPLE who died in a fatal road traffic collision in Barnsley last weekend have been named.

Last Saturday afternoon emergency services attended the Barugh Green crossroad junction following reports of a road traffic collision.

It is believed that a white Suzuki and a grey Range Rover collided, alongside other vehicles.

Despite the best efforts of paramedics, a 75-year-old man and an 85-year-old woman were sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Today, they have been named by police as married couple Peter and Margaret Deeley.

Peter and Margaret’s family continue to ask that their privacy be respected while they grieve the loss of their loved ones.

A 65-year-old man arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving remains released on police bail.

Officers are still keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision, has dashcam of the vehicles involved or any information that can assist with their inquiry.
