‘i was so lucKy’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Road Campaigns -

An­other per­son keen to add more safety mea­sures to the road is sup­port worker Mil­lie Goad, who lost con­trol of her car on the bend.

She was driv­ing to work in Ash­ford around 9am on Thursday, Au­gust 17, on roads that were wet after rain.

She said: “I live in the mid­dle of nowhere so I drive care­fully as I need my car. I know the road well be­cause I drive along it all the time, in all con­di­tions.

“It’s a bit blurry what hap­pened. I was going about 35mph, if that, and I just lost con­trol. The car skid­ded round the cor­ner and started flip­ping.

“I was so lucky be­cause the car landed up­right and there was no on­com­ing traf­fic.”

Just 20 min­utes ear­lier an­other driver had an ac­ci­dent on the same bend.

Mil­lie, who had to have a week off work due to whiplash, said: “I haven’t driven along the road since.”
