An ambulance spokesman said they were called at 11:08 p.m. and an air ambulance was dispatched.
James Carter, 40, from nearby Billinghay, caught the sight on Monday morning while walking his dog with his girlfriend.
He told the Mirror: “We saw a large cargo van, a converted camper, and the police were taking various things out and taking pictures of them and putting them in their lorries.
“At around 11:30 a.m. yesterday, we were walking the dog and it was clear that something bad had happened.
“There was another car parked in front of the passenger van, a black one. Both are cut off.
“Then we heard that a baby had died and felt we had to come here and order some flowers.
Chief Supt Andy Cox previously said: “This is a particularly sad incident, and one that we know will affect the local community, or indeed anyone who hears about it.
“There can be a temptation to speculate about what happened while people try to understand this tragedy and we ask that everyone avoid doing so, especially on social media where Truth can be distorted.
