Liverpool City Council insists plans for the regeneration of the Anfield area remain on track.
Luis Suarez has joined a growing list of biters in sports history after his altercation at the weekend.
Thousands of people are expected to attend a memorial service today to mark the 24th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.
Speaking at the scene of the crash, Chief Inspector Mark Bownass, head of West Yorkshire Police's roads policing unit, said emergency services were called to a report of a collision between a large goods vehicle and a minibus from South Elmsall, near Pontefract.
"We believe the minibus at this time was heading to a hen party in Liverpool," he said.
"Sadly within this accident there has been one fatality."
He said one woman had died and other casualties had been taken to numerous local hospitals.
David Cameron said his own intervention in Luis Suarez's 10 match ban for biting an opponent was merely that of a "concerned father" and added that the player's punishment was a matter for the Football Association.
The Prime Minister said earlier this week: "I think it would be very understandable if (the panel) took into account the fact that high-profile players are often role models."
The FA stated the standard three-match ban for violent conduct was "clearly insufficient" in Suarez's case when announcing he had been charged.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers claimed that that remarks from both Cameron and the FAhad affected the impartiality of the independent panel hearing his case.
Mr Cameron told BBC Radio Five Live this morning: "I made my own views clear just as a dad watching the game. I've got a seven-year-old son who just loves watching football and when players behave like this it just sets the most appalling example to young people in our country."
Pressed on whether a 10-match ban was appropriate for the offence, he added: "That's up to the FA, it's not my decision."
The Coroner has ruled that the Hillsborough inquest will not be delayed because of the Independent Police Complaints Commission investigation and will start in early 2014.
Dozens of family members of those that died in the Hillsborough disaster will travel to London today for an initial pre-inquest hearing, the proceedings will also be streamed on a live link-up from Liverpool Crown Court.
The hearing was arranged to establish the process under which High Court judge Lord Justice Goldring, appointed to oversee the inquests by attorney general Dominic Grieve, would proceed.
Lord Justice Goldring also sat on the trial of 10-year-old Damilola Taylor's killers.
The pre-inquest hearing will be held at the Principal Registry of the Family Division of the High Court from 11.30am, and is expected to conclude by 4.30pm.
A baby boy is in hospital after being attacked by the family dog. The 16 month old child received injuries to his head in the attack at a house in Bootle on Merseyside. Emergency crews treated the little boy before taking him to hospital. Police say the dog has been humanely destroyed.
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has until 6pm this evening to respond to the FA's charge of violent conduct. The charge follows Suarez biting Chelsea player Branislav Ivanovic on Sunday at Anfield.
The FA confirmed the charge on Monday, saying in a statement the incident was not seen by the match officials and has therefore has to be reviewed afterwards. The FA says the normal three match ban will be insufficient and they will convene an Independent Regulatory Commission on Wednesday.
Luis Suarez has admitted on Twitter that Liverpool fined him over the biting incident, adding that he requested that the money be donated to the Hillsborough Family Support Group.
