Tonbridge: Fatal collision in Borough Green

7 July 2014, 14:32

Police are renewing their appeal for information after a man died in a car crash in Borough Green.

Officers were called to the High Street at 11:10am on Friday 13 June, after a report of a pedestrian struck by a silver Vauxhall Astra.

85-year-old James Kilpatrick was taken to Kings College Hospital in London with life threatening injuries but died on 29 June.

Mr Kilpatrick's family said, ‘James was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He leaves behind his wife Phyllis of nearly 57 years, his children Heather, Ian and Donald, and 7 grandchildren. He loved spending time with his family, friends and pottering in his garden. His death has left a huge hole in the lives of everyone who knew him. Please respect the family’s privacy at this sad time.’

PC Jamie Woodhams, from the serious collision investigation unit, is appealing for anyone with information about the incident to come forward, ‘The collision happened in the middle of the day when there would have been lots of people out and about. I’m hopeful that anyone with any information – however minor they may think their information is – will make contact with me.’
