Tom Gregory and Lindsay Slater killed in fatal incident

A couple tragically killed in a car crash on the A228 in Hoo have been described as “fantastic parents” by their grieving family.

Tom Gregory, 29, and partner Lindsay Slater, 30, from Cliffe Road in Frindsbury, died in the fatal crash on the Medway-bound carriageway of the Ratcliffe Highway at 3.50pm on Saturday, April 6.

Lindsay was pronounced dead at the scene while Tom was airlifted to a London hospital, where he later died of his injuries.

The couple’s two daughters, four-year-old Hollie and seven-year-old Mae, were also in the vehicle and sustained minor injuries. They were taken to Medway Maritime Hospital and are now being cared for by relatives.

Officers from the Kent Police Serious Collision Investigation Unit are investigating the collision after it was reported the silver Peugeot left the road for reasons not yet known and came to rest in a nearby field after colliding with a road sign.

The family of the tragic couple has said: “Tom and Lindsay will always be remembered by their family and friends as fantastic parents to two beautiful little girls. They were a really close couple who will leave huge holes in all our lives.

“We would like to thank all those who have been in contact, offering messages of condolence; it’s greatly appreciated during this difficult time.”

Anyone with information about the collision, particularly anyone who saw the silver Peugeot travelling along the Medway-bound carriageway in the moments before the incident, is urged to contact the SCIU appeal line on 01622 798538.
