Tributes to man, 30s, killed in lane crash

KENT Police have appealed for witnesses following the death of a Maidstone man in a secluded country road.

A white Mercedes GL350 with two occupants was travelling along Pitt Road, between Langley and Kingswood, at about 11.25pm on September 20 when it left the carriageway and overturned. A man in his 30s died at the

scene. A second man was taken to hospital for treatment to his in- juries, which are thought to be sig- nificant. The vehicle is understood to

have travelled from Horseshoes Lane towards the scene of the inci- dent.


Pitt Road is a narrow country linking

Langley and

Kingswood, with dense deciduous woodland on either side. Floral tributes were left at the roadside, apparently from family and friends. One reads: “RIP Paul. I will cher-

ish the memories we had together. Sleep tight. Kerryann.” Another bunch of flowers was left by a cousin.

Nearby residents believe the man’s car may have flipped after hitting a pothole. At the scene of the incident the following day, it was clear that branches had been sawn off to gain access to the stricken car and its oc- cupants. The vehicle had been re- moved from the scene within hours of the incident.
