Carnage on Lincs roads...

As well as chaos on the railways, there's been more carnage on local roads as a devastated mum paid tribute to her teenage daughter killed in a road accident last week.

This morning, Lincolnshire Air Ambulance attended four people who were seriously hurt on the A15 between Deeping and Baston when a Toyota van and a Volvo car collided. No further details are yet known.

Last night, two people died when two cars collided in thick fog on the A17 at Fleet Hargate, Holbeach opposite the Anglia Motel.

The driver and passenger in a green Ford Fiesta both died at the scene. Lincs Police have not yet released their names, but they are believed to be local to the Holbeach area.

The female driver of a black VW Golf was taken to Queen Elizabeth's hospital, Kings Lynn with neck and back injuries which are not life threatening. She is from the Kings Lynn area and is expected to be released from hospital later today.

The main A17 road was closed overnight and re-opened in the early hours of this morning.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision to contact the witness hotline on 01522 558855.

Meanwhile, the Holbeach family of a 17-year-old girl who died as a result of a road traffic collision, last week have released a tribute to her.

Jody Louise Smith from Union Street, Holbeach was passenger in a silver Peugeot 206 which left the A151 at Whaplode and collided with a tree. She later died of her injuries at Boston Pilgrim Hospital.

Her mum Dawn said today:

Jody was a much loved daughter, stepdaughter, sister, stepsister, granddaughter, godmother, aunt and niece all the family thought the world of her.

She was such a bubbly girl, a typical teenager into clothes and makeup, who just wanted to live life to the full.

We still can’t believe that it has happened - it is such a tragic waste of our beautiful daughter's life.
