First death of New Year on Lincs roads...

Lincolnshire Police have confirmed that a woman died when a car left Moor Lane, Thurlby and hit a tree at mid-day last Wednesday.

She was passenger in a Fiat Punto driven by her 40-year-old brother. She was taken to Lincoln County by road ambulance where she later died.

The driver was airlifted to Lincoln County Hospital with serious facial injuries.

Both are believed to be from the Newark area.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision or anyone who was on Moor Lane just before noon on Wednesday and may have seen a silver/grey Punto prior to it leaving the road.
