Woman still critical after crash
A young woman is in a critical condition following a horror smash in an Ashford supermarket’s car park.
The 32-year-old was hit by a car on Thursday, February 11 outside Tesco Crooksfoot, off Hythe Road, in Willesborough, as she waited for her car to be washed.
She was airlifted to a London hospital with serious injuries.
Now, two weeks after the crash, police say she remains in a “critical but stable condition” in the hospital in the capital.
The car that hit the young woman, which was driven by a man in his 80s, also collided with two parked cars and a row of bollards outside the supermarket’s Harris & Hoole cafe.
A second woman in her 30s and a toddler – whose car was hit – were also taken to the nearby William Harvey Hospital with minor head injuries following the lunchtime incident.
The blue Renault Scenic car, which also had a female passenger, ended up in trees following the serious crash.
Both occupants of the vehicle were also taken to hospital as a precaution.
Following the incident, an area from the car wash to the coffee shop was cordoned off and police forensic teams were also on the scene.
This week, police say no arrests have been made since the smash.
They say they have also spoken to several witnesses but are still appealing for anyone who saw what happened to come forward – in particular a woman near Tesco’s entrance.
A spokesman said: “Investigations are on-going.
“Officers have spoken to a number of witnesses but are still keen to speak to anyone who was in the car park at the time and saw the collision and have not already spoken to police.
“This includes a woman dressed in black who was walking towards the covered walkway outside the supermarket when the collision occurred.”
