Witness appeal extended after serious Land Rover hit and run

Police are looking for two specific potential witnesses to a serious hit and run incident in Boston.

As reported at the time, a pedestrian was left in intensive care after they were hit by a black Land Rover at around 9.14pm on Thursday October 18 on Sleaford Road, Boston.

The driver of the Land Rover, a 32-year-old man from the local area, did not stop at the scene but was traced a short time later and was arrested for providing a positive breath test and leaving the scene of a collision.

The pedestrian, a 30-year-old local man, was taken to Boston Pilgrim Hospital and then transferred to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham.

Officers have now issued an appeal to find the following potential witnesses:

  • The driver of small white vehicle with black roof which was travelling behind the land rover before collision, and possibly followed it over Sluice Bridge.
  • The driver of a white vehicle travelling westbound on Sleaford Road. The black Land Rover is believed to have nearly collided with this vehicle.

Officers are also seeking dash cam footage which may have captured the incident or events leading up to it.

The man who was arrested has been released under investigation.

Anyone with information can contact police on the non-emergency 101 number.
