The Lead Investigator, Detective Sergeant Alison Bowley, is particularly keen to speak to the drivers of two vehicles that were travelling in the area of Sleaford Road, Boston, around the time of the collision.

He said: “The drivers may have information that will help my enquiry but they may not realise it and I really need to speak to them. I would like to reassure both drivers they are not suspected of doing anything wrong but I believe they have simply witnessed events either before, during or after the collision.”

The task of investigating this collision, which has led to the extremely sad death of David, includes speaking to as many people who witnessed the collision or who may have relevant information about events prior to the collision.”
