Police search for the driver of ‘small car’

THE driver of a small car who stopped at the scene of a fatal crash in Boston last Tuesday is being sought by police.

Lincolnshire police are appealing for the witness to the accident in which motorcyclist Valentina Planciume, 37, from Brothertoft, was killed on the A1121 area known as Boardsides, at Slatehouse Farm, between Wyberton Fen and Hubberts Bridge, at about 3.20am.

Her silver 125cc Yamaha collided with a grey Fiat Ulysse and a silver Peugeot 406 estate.

A police spokesman said a number of witnesses had come forward but they were looking in particularly for the driver who stopped at the scene and could be, according to other witnesses, Eastern European.

Police said the man alerted other people to what had happened and was probably one of the first people on the scene after the collision.

Police are also appealing for anyone who may have seen a Peugeot 406 estate vehicle in the area or a male walking at the roadside around that time.
