Driver arrested after DSJ roads tragedy

The Free Press called me this morning about an accident in the village yesterday and I started telling them about the "hole in the wall" incident which I posted with a photo HERE.

Tragically, a young man lost his life in another accident, round the corner on Broadgate Lane, a few hours after the first.

This is an extract from information Lincolnshire Police have released about the fatal accident:

Incident 480 of 17th September 2006 -Fatal Road Collision:

This incident took place at about 2015hrs on Sunday 17th September 2006 on Broadgate Lane,Deeping St James.

A silver moped was in collision with a blue VW Passat. The
moped rider was a 17-year-old youth from the Bourne area, he was taken to
Peterborough and District hospital but was certified as deceased soon after

The driver of the car left the scene but returned later, he is a
63-year-old local man. He was arrested on suspicion of drink driving. He was
later released on police bail and will return to the police station at a
later date when police enquiries and forensic test have been carried out.
