Two people have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after a mother and daughter were killed crossing the road in Strood.
Police arrested a 21-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman, both from Chatham, on Thursday.
The man is the driver of a Ford Fiesta which was in the area at the time. Both have been bailed pending further investigation.
The driver of a silver Seat Ibiza, which hit the couple in Station Road, has not been arrested.
On Sunday, a week after the crash - which killed Elsie Blades, 84, and her 60-year-old daughter Marilyn Herlihy - more than 400 vehicles were stopped and motorists questioned by police at the scene in a bid to find witnesses.
Elsie was pronounced dead at the scene. Marilyn was airlifted to the Royal London Hospital by Kent Air Ambulance, but died later.
Anyone with information is urged to contact police on 01622 798535 or Kent Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
