Coronation Street airs huge twist for Toyah Battersby over fatal car crash

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has aired a huge twist for Toyah Battersby over Imran’s fatal car crash.

Thus far, Kevin Webster has come under suspicion for allegedly fiddling with the brakes on Imran’s car hours before the crash, but police now suspect Toyah may not have told the truth in her statement.

Kevin faced tough questioning during Thursday’s (June 2) episode, as he tried to hide the truth that he did meddle with the ignition to aid in Abi’s failed attempt to run away with baby Alfie.

Some new information came to light from Kelly Neelan telling investigators Imran was on his way to confess all of his dirty deeds to Toyah just before the crash.

Abi and Kevin were ultimately released from custody when a diagnostics check confirmed the brakes weren’t tampered with, plus the CPS was declining to pursue kidnapping charges against Abi.

Over at the hospital, Toyah was still grieving Imran’s loss when she was confronted by the detective over her version of events.

The detective revealed she had eyewitness testimony claiming that Toyah and Imran were “rowing” just before their car hit the scaffolding.

“We have evidence that you may well have been fighting as you were driving,” the detective told a stunned Toyah.

The copper added: “The brakes on the car were working fine. You were speeding along and you made no attempt to apply the brakes, leading to the death of Mr Habeeb.

“You didn’t hit the brakes, did you?”

The episode left off on a cliffhanger with Toyah struggling to answer that all-important question.

Coronation Street airs at the earlier time of 7.30pm all this week on ITV and streams on the ITV Hub.
