Lincolnshire police are appealing for witnesses to a crash that took place on the A15 in Bourne which resulted in the death of Market Deeping town councillor Reg Howard.

Two cars collided near the Elsea Park roundabout on the A15 in Bourne on April 13 at around 12.20pm. Reg Howard, 93, of Kesteven Drive, Market Deeping, was a driver in one of the cars. He was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham but died the day after the accident.

The vehicle driven by Coun Howard narrowly missed a silver/grey MPV people carrier that was heading in the opposite direction moments before it collided with a 4x4 vehicle.

Several cars were in the traffic at the time and witnesses have since come forward. However police still want to speak to the driver of the silver/grey people carrier that was heading north.

Police have said that this vehicle took evasive action to avoid one of the cars and swerved quite dramatically in the road. The driver may have been unaware of the events that unfolded, but will have seen the vehicle they avoided.

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

This vehicle was not in contact with any of the other vehicles but the driver may have information vital to the police enquiry.

If you have any information please call 01522 885588 or contact your nearest police station quoting incident 167 of April 13.
