A FAMILY has paid tribute to their “wonderful mum” after a collision in Aveley on 3 June.
We were called to reports of a collision between a grey Ford Focus and white Ford Transit near Belhus Wood Country Park, on Romford Road, at 3.25pm.
Maureen Hampson, 86, who was driving the Ford Focus, was taken to hospital with serious injuries following the incident and sadly passed away on 17 July.
A man in his 80s, who was a passenger in the Focus, remains in hospital, having suffered serious injuries. He is expected to return home over the coming weeks.
Paying tribute to Mrs Hampson, her family said:
“We are very sad to announce the death of Maureen, a lovely wife and a wonderful mum. She died peacefully at Queen’s in Romford.
“We are grateful to the NHS and all the services who have supported Mum since the collision, and continue to support Dad.
“We send our best wishes to the driver of the Transit, who was also injured, and hope that he has made a full recovery.”
No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
Our investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101 and quote incident 698 of 3 June.
