A man knocked down by a car in Ashford more than three weeks ago has died in hospital, police said today.
Jogger Paul Stinton was hit by a vehicle in Simone Weil Avenue on Saturday, January 4.
The 45-year-old died in King's College Hospital, in London, on Thursday night.
Earlier, a 48-year-old Ashford woman was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving.
She has been released on police bail until Monday, March 24 while officers make further inquiries.
Mr Stinton was flown to hospital after being hit by the Ford Kuga at the traffic lights in Simone Weil Avenue at about 1.45pm.
Emergency services had closed both carriageways to allow the air ambulance to land.
Mr Stinton suffered life-threatening head, neck, chest and abdominal injuries and was flown by air ambulance to Tunbridge Wells Hospital.
He was later transferred to London in a critical condition.
Simone Weil Avenue was closed in both directions for four hours while officers gathered evidence.
It meant hundreds of motorists found themselves trapped on the Warren Retail Park.
Police are still appealing for witnesses to phone the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 01622 798538.
