A 92-YEAR-OLD Bolton woman has died months after a driver crashed into her home.

Edna Kerns was taken to hospital after a BMW crashed into her home on White Horse Grove in Westhoughton at around 5.15am on November 28 last year.

She had been discharged from hospital earlier this year, but was readmitted and then died on Friday, April 8 at the Royal Bolton Hospital.

Her granddaughter, Lesley Lister, paid tribute to her on social media.

She said: “Grandma was a very special lady, she was a fighter till the very end.

“Her presence is already greatly missed by all the family. It's left a huge hole in our hearts.”
