Officers investigating a fatal collision on the M2 which resulted in the death of Broadstairs resident Heidie Lee Locke are appealing for witnesses to come forward, particularly the driver of a light coloured van who officers believe may have important information.
At around 6.14am on Sunday 27 November a red Nissan Qashqai was involved in a collision with a red Mercedes-Benz C 200 AMG between junction six and five on the London-bound carriageway.
Kent Police and South East Coast Ambulance Service attended the scene.
Heidie, who was the driver of the Nissan Qashqai, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The flight attendant of 35 years was reportedly on her way to Heathrow.
Friends paying tribute online have spoken of Heidie’s love of photography, music and art.
One friend described: “Someone who has touched everyone she has ever met, with her infectious smile, witty banter and zest for life.”
A 40-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and drink driving.
Heidie’s next of kin has been informed about the incident.
Officers from Kent Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened, or who has relevant dashcam or CCTV footage.
They are keen to talk to the driver of a light-coloured van who may have seen the Mercedes pass them prior to the collision. They believe the motorist may have important information which can assist their investigation.
Drivers should call the SCIU appeal line on 01622 798538, or email [email protected], quoting reference AH/SC/131/22.
Drivers with dashcam footage which may assist the investigation can submit it here.
