Mereworth: Police renew appeal for witnesses to fatal A228 crash

By Natalie Tipping

Police have renewed their appeal after a woman in her 60s died in a head-on crash.

The woman, from the Maidstone area, was travelling on the A228 between Mereworth and Kings Hill when her red Peugeot 206 collided with a white Ford Transit van.

The crash happened close to the junction with The Street, at around 3.10pm on Sunday.

The woman suffered serious injuries and was flown to King's College Hospital in London, but died shortly after arrival. 

A man also suffered serious injuries, and was arrested on suspicion of driving while unfit. 

After being released from hospital he was interviewed under caution by police, and has now been released as the investigation continues.

Officers want to speak to anyone who saw the incident or the van as it travelled from the Hop Farm roundabout in Paddock Wood, along the A228, Seven Mile Lane, and the A26, to the scene of the incident. 

Police are particularly interested in hearing from the occupants of a black Mini, black Citroen, white Ford Fiesta, and a vehicle towing a green horse trailer.

If you have not already done so, call the serious crash investigation unit appeal line on 01622 798538 quoting reference MW/181/17.
