Car crash couple thank grandson’s samaritan
A COUPLE involved in a car crash on the A28 Ashford Road have expressed their thanks to a couple who comforted their two-year-old grandson.
Mother-of-four Pauline and Peter Denne, both 66, had been to Kent and Canterbury Hospital last Friday when the Peugeot 206 carrying their daughter Gemma and grandson Kenzie was hit by a BMW.
Kingsnorth resident Mr Denne said: “We’d taken Gemma to hospital and were driving back towards Ashford.
“I could see this car was indicating to go into East Stour Farm and then I saw a lorry dip because he put his brakes on hard – and I knew it was going to hit the car.”
As the BMW was hit it ploughed across the road and into the Peugeot, which was veering to the left to try to avoid a crash. The car hit the verge and almost went into the river running alongside the road at Chilham.
The front wheel of their car was dislodged while the driver’s door was stove in.
Mrs Denne added: “Kenzie is still talking about what happened and keeps saying ‘car crash’ to his mum.
“It happened so quickly and you just heard smash, smash, smash.
“When we saw the car after- wards it was just a wreck.
“We’d like to thank the couple who were in a silver car behind the lorry who got our grandson from his safety seat and comforted him while we were in a dazed state.”
