Motor Accident In Lincolnshire


Three people, including a mother and her three-year-old daughter, have been killed in a road crash, Lincolnshire police have revealed.

The two were passengers in a red Mini Cooper that collided with a grey Honda Civic and a white Peugeot van.

A 61-year-old man, the driver of the van, was also also declared dead at the scene of the accident, which happened on Tuesday near Woodhall Spa.

The driver of the Mini, a 22-year-old man, and a 30-year-old passenger were taken to hospital with serious chest and head injuries. The 33-year-old Honda driver suffered minor injuries.

Sergeant Andy Roach said: "I am particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw the red Mini Cooper being driven between Lincoln and the crash scene or who has any information as to the manner in which it was being driven."
