Police want to speak to witnesses of a crash that killed a Hawke's Bay kindergarten teacher.

Pam McGarva, 55, died on July 20 after a head-on collision left her in a coma for 10 days.

The 24-year-old driver of the other car was seriously injured in the crash on Prebensen Dr in the Napier suburb of Poraiti on July 9 about 6.20pm.

At the time police said it appeared the younger woman, who was heading towards Taradale, crossed the centre line and crashed into McGarva's car.

Senior constable Cory Ubels of the Serious Crash Unit;said inquires were continuing but police still needed to speak to people that saw what happened and those who attended the crash scene before emergency services arrived. No witnesses had come forward to police.

Ubels also wanted to hear from anyone that saw a silver Nissan Primera driving around Westminster and Tamatea Drive prior to the crash.
