Third minibus crash victim dies
Scene of crash
Three elderly passengers died in the accident
A third woman has died from her injuries almost two weeks after a minibus overturned in Lincolnshire.

The bus carrying a group of elderly passengers rolled into a ditch on the A631 between Glentham and Caenby Corner on Sunday, 18 December.

Police said nine people were taken to Lincoln County Hospital after the crash. Two of them died from their injuries before Christmas.

The 83-year-old victim from the Grimsby area has not yet been named by police.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out on Friday.

The passengers, in their 70s and 80s, were returning to Grimsby after a shopping trip in Gainsborough. No-one else was seriously injured.

A family of four from Wickersley in South Yorkshire, who were travelling in a car that was involved in the accident, received minor injuries.

The minibus driver, a 42-year-old man from Cleethorpes, suffered minor injuries and did not go to hospital.
