First picture of ‘life and soul’ teenager who died in country lane car crash

An 18-year-old woman who died at the scene of a crash in Kent has been named as Casey Hood.

Memories, pictures and tributes have been posted on social media in memory of the teenager who was involved in the smash at around 3.48am today in the village of Womenswold.

Kent Live reports that officers on patrol saw a Toyota Yaris parked on the A2 slip road towards Adisham Road – but the vehicle then left the scene.

Police then caught up with the car where they discovered it had been involved in a crash.

The ambulance and fire services were called and Miss Hood was pronounced dead at the scene.

A second woman, who has not been named, was taken to a London hospital where her condition is described as critical.

Two men have also been taken to an east Kent hospital where their conditions are described as stable.

An eyewitness told Kent Live the vehicle was still in the road this morning and police have said the road has been closed all day so far while an investigation is launched.

Facebook tributes describe Miss Hood as "the life and soul of any party" and "a beautiful girl".

It is believed Miss Hood also had links to Dover and that she went to the Canterbury Academy.

Due to the earlier sighting of the vehicle prior to the crash, Kent Police has referred the incident to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen the Toyota prior to or at the time of the collision, or who have dashcam footage to get in contact.

Witnesses can call the appeal line on 01622 798538 quoting 14-0130.
