A Sheppey mum who died in a road accident on her way to work had just dropped her son off at school, an inquest has been told.
Charlotte Buesden, 28, tragically died after the crash along the Swale Way at Kemsley.
At the opening, coroner Bina Patel read a report from her investigating officer which said she lost control of her Nissan Qashqai and collided with the front of an HGV travelling in the opposite direction on the other side of the carriageway .
The accident happened on August 23.
A post mortem found she had suffered a severe fracture of the skull.
Expressing her condolences to Miss Buesden's family for their tragic loss, the coroner adjourned the inquest for a full hearing at County Hall in Maidstone on November 9.
After the crash, well-wishers lined the roadside with floral tributes to the popular former Canterbury College and Highsted Grammar School pupil, with one friend saying: "You are too young, too beautiful and too kind to be gone."
A Facebook memorial has also been dedicated to her. It reads: “We hope that people who love Charlotte will find comfort in visiting her profile to remember and celebrate her life.”
Police shut the road for 11 hours between the Iwade and Kemsley turn-off on the A249 and Barge Way as they collected evidence.
