Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision where two people have sadly died in Tetney Lock in Lincolnshire.

From Lincolnshire Police:

The collision was reported at 1.33pm yesterday (6 January) when a blue Mercedes 300 left the road and became submerged in water at Tetney Lock Road.

Emergency services, including police, crews from Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, and EMAS were immediately dispatched, and support was also provided by colleagues at Humberside Police.

Sadly, a 16-year-old boy and 40-old man in the car were pronounced dead at the scene.

Their next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially-trained officers.  

Diversions were put in place at Tetney Lock Road junction with Hoop End and the Tetney Lock Road junction with New Delights while emergency services worked, and initial enquiries were carried out. The road was reopened just before 3am.

We are now appealing for anyone who may have information to come forward. 

We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the vehicle driving prior to the incident and captured it on dashcam or has footage of the collision itself.

Please check footage from the Laceby crossroads at Laceby, Grimsby, and the surrounding roads leading to the Tetney Lock Road area between 12:30pm and 1.33pm yesterday.

At this stage it is not believed there were any other vehicles involved but we are keeping an open mind as the investigation progresses.
