A second driver involved in the fatal Bobbing accident last week has died.
The 18-year-old man, from Sittingbourne, died at a hospital in Romford this afternoon.
His family has been informed but police are not releasing his name at this time.
Mum of one Claire Mackinnon also died in the accident which happened near the McDonald's restaurant on Sheppey Way, at 4.50pm on Wednesday, March 30.
The 28-year-old, of High Street, Queenborough, was the driver of a blue Ford Escort which was hit head-on by a red Ford Sierra which was travelling in the opposite direction.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man driving the Sierra was taken to the Essex hospital with head and spinal injuries which were described at the time as life-threatening.
