A YOUNG mother who died after being struck by a lorry has been named.

Lorraine Roebuck was 35 and lived at Ashleigh Vale, Kendray.

An inquest was opened last week and adjourned pending further enquiries on behalf of the coroner.

Shortly after 9am on June 27, a red/white Scania goods vehicle is understood to have stopped on Grange Lane towards the Stairfoot roundabout to allow a black vehicle to emerge from Doncaster Road.

Lorraine walked down Doncaster Road and crossed Grange Lane in front of the goods vehicle, heading towards the Black Bull public house. The vehicle then set off and collided with her in the carriageway.

Obviously the two ignorant Neanderthals got someone to write for them, as they are too thick to realise what they are saying, Get a life boys and crawl back into your holes, show some respect !!!

Steve and ccc have you no compassion at all? I guess from your comments you are two very ignorant hard hearted wastes of space who don't know what it's like to lose a loved one. The lady that died was a much loved person of the community and is sadly missed by our family. Why don't you keep your comments to yourself and get on with your sad boring lives.
