Praise for passers-by and emer­gency ser­vices

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Horror Smash -

The Web­sters are keen to thank the un­known passers-by who helped them at the scene of the crash.

“We were stuck for 35 min­utes and our car caught fire,” said Mark Web­ster. “A mo­tor­cy­clist got a fire ex­tin­guisher to put the flames out and was try­ing to flag down other ve­hi­cles.

“We want to thank those who stopped to help. We don’t know who they are but they made a real dif­fer­ence.”

Among those who stopped were a cou­ple from Ten­ter­den and an off-duty am­bu­lance per­son.

There was also a girl who was talk­ing to Mr Web­ster af­ter he had been freed while fire crews were try­ing to cut his wife out of the wreck­age.

Mrs Web­ster said: “They do not re­alise what a dif­fer­ence they made to get us through it. They stopped to help some­one they did not know.”

The cou­ple praised the emer­gency ser­vices.

“They were fan­tas­tic,” said Mrs Web­ster. “I was con­scious all the time un­til they gave me some­thing to knock me out. Be­cause I was in shock, I thought I would have my leg put in a cast and be home later that day.”

The Web­sters en­cour­aged peo­ple to do­nate money to the Kent Air Am­bu­lance.
