A man was killed last night (Monday, March 21) after a car hit him on the A15 between Northorpe and the Elsea Park roundabout in Bourne.

Police were called along with other emergency services to a collision on the A15 Bourne Road, Thurlby at just after 8pm after reports that a gold Ford Mondeo had collided with a pedestrian.

The local woman, aged 39, who was driving the car was taken to hospital with shock but she was not physically injured.

The male pedestrian, who has not yet been identified, was given first aid at the scene but he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Police are attempting to contact relatives but he is believed to be Spanish and this could take some time.

A spokesman said: “We are asking for anyone who was in the area of Bourne Road, Thurlby, last evening around 8pm and saw the gold Ford Mondeo before it collided with the pedestrian or who saw the collision itself to contact us on the witness hotline on 01522 558855 or 101.”

The road was closed until about 9.15pm to allow the investigation to take place.

This brings the number of people killed on Lincolnshire’s roads to 15 compared with five at the same time last year.
