Police have appealed for witnesses after a serious crash between a van and a motorbike on the A15 near King Street, just outside Baston.

The crash happened near Waterside Garden Centre just after 1pm on Monday, October 19. Police have since confirmed that the motorcyclist, 42-year-old Steven Bristow, from Bourne, died at the scene. The van driver, a 45-year-old Sheffield man, was taken to Peterborough City hospital with none life threatening injures.

Senior investigating officer sergeant Ewan Gell said he was keen to talk to anyone who saw a black Yamaha motorbike overtaking vehicles on the A15 travelling north towards Bourne at the time of the accident. The bike collided with a white Mercedes Benz van travelling towards Market Deeping.

“I would appeal to anyone who was travelling along the A15 at Baston and who was overtaken by a motorbike, or who saw either vehicle, or the crash to give the investigation team a call” said sergeant Gell.
