Fatal collision, Newton-on-Trent – investigation continues

Three released from custody

The three men, arrested on suspicion of death by dangerous driving after the collision, have been released from custody, pending further enquiries.

We are renewing our appeal for information following the RTC, which happened on Saturday evening, 20 November, on the A1133 Collingham Road, Newton on Trent. The collision was reported at 10.12 pm and we would like to hear from anyone who saw a Mitsubishi Shogun travelling towards the A57 prior to that time.

We would like to hear from anyone who has not already contacted us, who saw the vehicle before the RTC, the collision or was in the area afterwards and may have seen people in the area. If you have dashcam footage that will help our inquiries please get in touch.

Detective Sergeant Emma Ward, Serious Collision Investigation Unit, Lincolnshire Police, said: “We send our condolences to the family of the man who sadly died in the collision. We will do everything we can to establish the circumstances and complete a thorough and detailed investigation.

“I appeal to anyone who has information that will assist in the investigation to get in touch. If you know anything you should give us a call and help us investigate this sad death.”
