A pregnant woman who was seriously injured in a horror crash on the M66 has tragically died.

Frankie Hough, 38, was caught up in the smash on Saturday afternoon, along with her two sons and her nephew.

Frankie, who was 18 weeks pregnant, has sadly passed away today.

Her children Tommy, nine and Rocky, two, were also hospitalised after the crash, with a huge emergency services response on the scene.

22-year-old Adil Iqbal, of Hope Street, Accrington, stands charged with causing death by dangerous driving and two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.


Friends of the family set up a Go Fund Me for Frankie and her family yesterday.

In it, they wrote that her eldest son and her nephew Tobias, four, were both in medically induced comas.


At the time of writing, the fundraiser has already raised almost £25,000 for the devastated family.
