Police are appealing for the driver of a silver or possibly grey people carrier to come forward following a fatal crash on the south side of Bourne.

The crash on the A15 at 12.20pm on April 13 claimed the life of South Kesteven District Council chairman Reg Howard.

John Siddle, from Lincolnshire Road Safety Road Partnership, said the south bound vehicle narrowly missed a silver or grey MPV people carrier style vehicle moments before it collided with a 4x4.

He said: “Several cars were in the traffic at the time and witnesses have come forward, however the driver of the silver/grey people carrier vehicle, heading north, has yet to come forward.

“It is known the driver of this vehicle took evasive action to avoid one of the cars and swerved quite dramatically in the road to achieve this.

“The driver may be unaware of the events that unfolded thereafter but will have seen the vehicle he or she avoided.

Officers are appealing for the driver of that people carrier to contact the police.
