The car containing potential witnesses was stationary at traffic lights at King Cross and then turned onto Skircoate Moor Road.

It was passed by the Megane and officers believe the occupants may well have seen the collision in front of it between the Megane and Mr Provis before observing the Megane as it left the scene.
