A 75-year-old woman has died after the ambulance she was a patient in crashed in Lincolnshire.

It happened about 03:00 GMT near the junction with High Ferry Lane on the A16 Boston Road at Sibsey.

Two male ambulance service staff, aged 62 and 52, were taken to Boston Pilgrim Hospital and treated for minor injuries.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have appealed for witnesses.

BBC Radio Lincolnshire reporter Scott Dalton said the road was closed and the ambulance was still on its side in a ditch.

East Midlands Ambulance Service said in a statement: “One of our double crewed ambulances was involved in a road traffic collision just before 3am this morning on the A16 Boston Road, Lincolnshire.

“The vehicle contained two of our ambulance crew and a patient who was being taken to hospital. No other vehicle was involved.

“The incident is subject to a police investigation and therefore it is not appropriate for us to make further comment at this time.”
