Motorists who were travelling on the A17 Leadenham Bypass on Monday morning (20 June) are being encouraged to come forward if they witnessed a four-vehicle crash.
We were called to the incident at 10:42am which involved a Volvo XC90, Jaguar XF, a Peugeot Boxer (livestock carrier) and a Mercedes-Benz.
Six people were injured and two of those were taken to Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham for treatment of serious injuries.
A 70-year-old passenger in the Jaguar has sadly not survived her injuries. The other two patients are currently recovering at the hospital.
Ewan Gell, Senior Investigating Officer, says:
“If you were travelling on the A17 and witnessed this crash, it is extremely important that you get in touch.
“We are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who saw the driving of the purple Volvo XC90 before the collision, which was travelling towards Newark.
“Please call us immediately on our Witness Collision Hotline – 01522 558855.”
A horse travelling in the Peugeot livestock carrier was also treated at the scene by a vet for an injury to its leg.
People with information can also call the police non-emergency number, 101.
