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.”
