Gioele was working on a shift as a courier driver when he said he was overtaken by a white BMW which he said came quickly and in the wrong direction from the roundabout at the B1231 Melton Road junction.

He said the vehicle was heading the wrong way onto the A63 and collided with the gray Peugeot that Alison, 43, was driving shortly after getting to the road.

Gioele said: “I am a courier driver and I was on my way home from a depot in Melton. When I reached the entrance to the A63, I saw this white car driving at full speed out of the first roundabout the wrong way.

“I was driving about 60 with the van and he passed me on the other side as if I was slow. Maybe 10 seconds from that he hit the other car.”

Humberside Police confirmed that a white BMW 1 Series collided with a gray Peugeot 3008 on the A63 in a westerly direction before stopping and setting fire.

Gioele said he saw a vehicle drive over the central reserve.

“There were parts of cars all over the road, it looked like there were other cars involved, but I could not see because the area was covered in smoke.”

Alison of Elloughton was described by a broken man Rob as his “guiding star, love and best friend”.

Clark, 40, said: “Alison was a beautiful and caring person that I’m incredibly proud of and that’s the part of her I want everyone to remember.

“Losing Alison has left a hole in many people’s hearts and we are all sad today.”

He told Hull Live: “It’s like getting your heart torn out. I can not understand it. I keep expecting her to walk through the door. I feel a huge sense of loss.

“I feel incredibly, incredibly sad to lose her and over the thought that Emily will grow up without her mother. She was such a wonderful woman and mother.

“She wanted to look after her interests in everything. She wanted to help her pursue her dreams.

“She was a warrior when it came to taking care of people’s interests, including our daughter’s.
