‘I hope everyone who sees this takes extra care behind the wheel going forward, because life is precious and can be taken away in the blink of an eye.’
The third victim – who has not yet been named – sustained minor injuries and has been discharged from hospital, a Kent Police spokesman said.
A police spokesman said: ‘Officers are working to establish the circumstances of the collision and are urging anyone who saw the Mini in the moments leading up to the incident, or who have dash cam footage from the area around the time, to contact them.’
