Appeal for witnesses as family pay tribute to "loving great aunt" who was involved in fatal collision in Woking earlier this month

28 Aug, 2018 09:50 News Witness Appeals


We are appealing for help to trace any potential witnesses to a multi-car collision on Sheerwater Road, Woking which has since led to the death of one of the drivers involved.

The incident is believed to have involved a white VW Crafter van which allegedly stopped to allow a vehicle to emerge from Holm Close. This resulted in a blue Audi A4, a red Nissan Micra and a red Honda Civic travelling in the same direction all colliding. Emergency services had to be called to deal with the trapped driver of the Nissan.

The collision happened on Sheerwater Road, Woking at around 2pm on August 8.

The driver of the Nissan, Margaret Hawkins, 73, was taken to St Peters Hospital in Chertsey but sadly later died from her injuries.

Sergeant JP Davis said: “We are appealing for witnesses who may have seen this incident to come forward with any information. If you have any CCTV or a dash-cam that may have captured anything of relevance, please get in touch as soon as you can.”

Margaret’s family have released the following tribute: “Margaret was a loving great aunt who will be deeply missed. We are all devastated to have lost her so suddenly. She was very well known within the Sheerwater community where she had lived her whole life. A dedicated charity worker, she was heavily involved with the Cat Protection Society and spent time finding suitable homes for abandoned cats.

“We would like to say thanks to her friends and the local community for their compassion and support.”

Anyone with any information should contact Surrey Police on 101 (999 in an emergency) or use and quote PR/180090529.

Alternatively any information can be provided in complete anonymity to the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
