Victim has serious head injuries
Coxheath: Tributes Paid To Teenager
Zoe Georgiou was killed when she was hit by a car in Coxheath.
The 17 year old was walking with her boyfriend in the village when a silver Mazda hit her as she was crossing Heath Road at around 6 o'clock on Saturday evening.
Friends have been paying tribute on facebook to Zoe Georgiou a student at Invicta Grammar school in Maidstone and asking fellow pupils to wear bright colours in her memory.
She has been described as a 'bright, happy' student who was hoping to pursue a career in medicine
Below is a tribute from Mrs Derrick, Headteacher, Invicta Grammar School:
'Invicta Grammar School is very saddened to hear of the loss of Zoe Georgiou who was a very bright, happy Sixth form student with a gentle personality and a strong creative streak. She was studying AS levels in Psychology, Biology, Chemistry and English and had already achieved 11 GCSEs. She had expressed an interest in studying medicine at university and pursuing a medical career, which would have undoubtedly suited Zoe’s caring nature. She will be sorely missed by all her friends at Invicta and by her teachers.
We are devastated to have lost such a lovely student in such tragic circumstances. Our thoughts are very much with Zoe’s family at this very sad time.
We will be liaising with Mr and Mrs Georgiou to help support them in any way we can. We naturally want to pay tribute to Zoe and will be guided by family and friends when the time is right.'
