Samantha Ford will appear in court tomorrow accused of killing her children Jake and Chloe after they died in hospital yesterday.
The 37-year-old mother allegedly crashed the family’s Ford Galaxy into the back of a lorry before she was arrested.
Emergency services discovered the children after 37-year-old Samantha was pulled from the wreckage of a crash on a dual carriageway at 2.50am yesterday morning.
Neighbours said the mother had only just moved into the £215,000 property, which was privately rented through a local letting agent.
Police were called in the early hours of yesterday morning when Ford crashed into the back of a lorry on the A299 near the popular seaside town of Whitstable.
She managed to escape with minor injuries despite the impact causing her car bonnet to completely crumple.
It is not known why the mother was travelling on the London-bound carriageway of the A299 Thanet Way in the middle of the night.
She was taken to hospital with what one neighbour claimed was a broken nose, but was later discharged and taken into custody at a Kent police station.
Police tonight confirmed that Ford, of Castle Drive, Margate, had been arrested on suspicion of murder following the deaths of two children.
