Update: Serious collision in Caistor



We are sad to report that the victim of this collision, Vitalij Valiuk died in hospital on the evening of December 24th.


We are appealing for help to trace a witness who may be able to assist with our investigation into a collision.

At around 9pm on December 13 we received a report of a collision involving a Skoda Octavia and a pedestrian in Audby Top, Caistor

We issued an appeal to trace the family of the pedestrian who was taken to hospital with serious injuries. We have now managed to trace the family and we have identified the man as Vitalij Valiuk.

We are now trying to trace the driver of a small silver car who we believe may have witnessed this collision.

Original appeal: 

We are urgently appealing for help to trace the family or friends of Vitalij Valiuk.

We believe Mr Valiuk, whose date of birth may be 27/3/1983, was involved in road traffic collision in Caistor on Friday 13 December.

Officers attended the collision involving a pedestrian (Mr Valiuk) and a Skoda Octavia in Audleby Top at around 9pm. The driver of the Skoda was not injured. 

Mr Valiuk suffered serious injuries and we are urgently trying to locate his next of kin.

Enquiries show that the man we believe to be Mr Valiuk got on to a bus in Lincoln at 10.45am on December 13. He travelled to Caistor and was last seen in the White Hart pub at around 4.25pm.

He is described as white male aged, and he was wearing dark clothing/joggers.  He has short dark hair and when in the pub he had a dark back pack. Mr Valiuk no longer had his backpack when he was involved in the collision.

We believe he lived in the Thesiger Street area of Lincoln but he may have links to Boston and Spalding.

Detective Sergeant Alison Bowley, from the serious collisions unit, said: “Extensive enquiries have been carried out to try and identify this man who has suffered serious injuries in a collision. He had a bank card on him in the name of Vitalij Valiuk.

“We would like to hear from anyone who may know Vitalij Valiuk as this may help us find his family. We would also like to hear from anyone who may have been travelling on the bus from Lincoln to Caistor on Friday 13 December, anyone who believes they may have seen him on the bus or in Caistor and anyone who may have come across his backpack.”
