A COUPLE killed in a road crash on the A228 in Hoo have been described as "fantastic parents" by their family.
Tom Gregory, 29, and Lindsay Slater, 30, from Cliffe Road in Frindsbury, died following a collision with a road sign just after 3.50pm last Saturday, on the Medway-bound carriageway of the Ratcliffe Highway.
Kent Police are investigating the collision after it was reported a silver Peugeot left the road for reasons not yet known and came to rest in a nearby field.
Ms Slater was pronounced dead at the scene while her partner Tom was airlifted to a London hospital where he later died of his injuries.
The couple’s two daughters, Hollie, four, and Mae, seven, were also in the vehicle and sustained minor injuries. They were taken to the Medway Maritime Hospital by land ambulance and are now being cared for by relatives.
A tribute from the family read: "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 that will leave huge holes in all our lives.
"We would like to thank all those that 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.
