Driver dies three weeks after crash with ambulance

A man has died three weeks after a serious crash in Waddington with an ambulance.

He was 81 and local to Waddington.

At around 1pm on Wednesday, January 25, an ambulance, which was displaying emergency blue lights and travelling to a patient call, was involved in a crash with a silver Vauxhall Vectra saloon and a black Toyota Prius on Grantham Road.

The crash happened on the A607 at the junction with Vanwall Drive. The ambulance had been entering Waddington and travelling towards Navenby.

Sadly the driver of the Vauxhall Vectra involved in this collision has died.

The driver of the Vauxhall was not taken to hospital after the crash.

The driver of the Vectra was not initially taken to hospital following the crash.

However, he was subsequently admitted on February 13 and now has now died.

A post mortem examination will take place to see if the man’s death is linked to the collision.

Police wish to trace the driver of a dark coloured vehicle which was behind the silver Vectra in a line of traffic at the time of the collision on Grantham Road, Waddington.

Inspector Simon Heads, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “I appeal for any witnesses to this collision who have not already spoken to the police to contact me.

“In particular, I would like the driver of the car following the silver Vauxhall Vectra to call me, as a witness, to help add to the information in our enquiry.”

As previously reported, ambulance crews involved in the incident were previously praised by residents for their actions at the scene of the incident.

Witnesses are asked to contact Inspector Heads by calling 101, quoting incident 160, January 25.
