Subhash Pai was driving from his home in Tunbridge Wells to the Chapel Park Dental Practice in St Leonards where he had worked for 11 years, when he crashed his car on the A21 Pembury Bypass.

It is believed his black Audi Q7 first struck the central barrier before leaving the carriageway on the morning of Saturday, July 27.
