Community effort after March road accident
Police have thanked members of the public for assisting after an accident involving an 80-year-old motorist this morning (Wednesday).
The accident happened at the junction of Broad Street and Dartford Road in March, and the pensioner – who was not at fault – was shaken up but not seriously hurt.
Officers say one member of the public assisted at a road closure and a British gas employee used his van to block a junction, allowing them to carry out a swift investigation, secure the scene and re-open the road as soon as possible.
The 80-year-old was badly shaken so an officer drove him home and had a cup of tea with him until further help arrived.
A spokesman said: "This was a real example of members of the community coming together."
