With Lincolnshire’s roads being the second deadliest in the UK - we have compiled a list of those areas where the most serious road traffic collisions (RTCs) have been reported in recent years. The details come from crashmap.co.uk and cover recorded RTCs which resulted in fatalities or serious injuries over a five year period from 2014 to 2018. The data featured here does not include all the additional RTCs classed as ‘slight’ for injury levels. Crashmap.co.uk uses data published by the Department of Transport which is based on records submitted by the Police. The figures for 2019 are yet to be released. The area coming out worst is the A17 junctions to the B1397 Spalding Road near Sutterton - which saw 11 vehicles involved in fatal or serious RTCs in just four years (see main photo, above).
