POLICE investigating a horror car crash which killed a former women’s rugby star are trying to trace two key witnesses to the tragedy.

Keri Holdsworth suffered serious head and back injuries after her Renault Clio was ­involved in a head-on collision with a BMW in Hartlepool in north-east England on June 13.

The 36-year-old, who lived in Slateford and worked as club physio for Watsonians rugby club, passed away the following day.

Cleveland Police want to speak with the driver of a light-coloured or white van which may have been using the Dalton junction at the time of the incident.

Officers also want to trace a military forces medic who stopped at the scene and ­assisted with first aid. He was driving a military ambulance vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Pc Mark Pearson from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit on the non-emergency 101 number, quoting reference number 100435.

Ms Holdsworth worked as a senior physiotherapist at the University of Edinburgh’s Fitness Assessment and Sports Injuries Centre (FASIC) at the Pleasance.

She collected 15 caps for Scotland and competed in the Women’s World Cup in 2010, while turning out for club side Watsonian Ladies.

The crash took place at around 4.30pm on the A19 northbound.
