Pedestrian killed in 15th fatal Lincolnshire crash

A man has sadly died after he was hit by a car in Lincolnshire overnight.

Emergency services were called to the crash on the A15 Bourne Road, Thurlby just after 8pm on Monday, March 21 where a gold Ford Mondeo had collided with a pedestrian.


A local woman, aged 39, who was driving the car was taken to hospital with shock but not physically injured.

The male pedestrian, who has not yet been identified, was given first aid at the scene but pronounced dead a short time later.

Officers said they are attempting to contact relatives but “he is believed to be Spanish and this could take some time”.

The road was closed until about 9.15pm to allow the investigation to take place.

Police are asking anyone who was in the area of Bourne Road, Thurlby, last evening around 8pm and saw the gold Ford Mondeo before it collided with the pedestrian or who saw the collision itself to call the witness hotline on 01522 558855 or 101.

The incident brings the number of people killed on Lincolnshire’s roads to 15, compared with five at the same time last year.

As previously reported, the county’s roads claimed more lives in the first two months of 2016 than figures seen in a decade.
