A woman who was killed in a crash on an Essex road has been named for the first time.
The B1007 between Horndon-on-the-Hill and Stanford-le-Hope in Thurrock was flooded with emergency services after the three-vehicle crash on December 17 last year.
Sadly, Keira Grover, 46, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics shortly after their arrival at 9.30pm.
Ms Grover, who lived in East Tilbury, was the only victim to sustain serious injuries.
The inquest into Ms Grover’s death was opened at Essex Coroner’s Court in Chelmsford today (Friday, January 7).
Coroner’s officer Andre Kimche said: “She was travelling on the road towards the A13 when her car was in collision with another vehicle in the other direction.

“Emergency services were called but life was pronounced extinct. Essex Police have begun an investigation.
“A post-mortem gave a provisional cause of death as 1A multiple severe injuries and road traffic collision.”
Area coroner Michelle Brown adjourned the full inquest until December 2022.
She said: “There is no intended prosecution to any other parties in relation to this.
“However, subject to family concerns – we are still waiting for a full post mortem, toxicology, police statements and reports and a family life letter – it could be dealt with as a documentary but we will keep it listed for now.”
