Driver Faces Multiple Charges After Serious A2 Crash Near Bluewater and Ebbsfleet

A driver is facing a slew of charges after allegedly fleeing the scene of a serious crash on the A2 near Bluewater and Ebbsfleet.

The incident occurred on Friday evening on the coastbound carriageway of Watling Street, between the A296 and Ebbsfleet junctions. Three cars were involved in the crash, a black Ford Fiesta, a blue Audi S3, and a blue MG HS, resulting in a 13-hour closure of the eastbound carriageway.

One passenger was airlifted to the hospital and is currently in a serious condition, while two others were treated for injuries and later released. After an investigation, two individuals were arrested on Tuesday and now a man has been charged.

Matthew Sparkes, 35, of no fixed address, has been charged with causing serious injury by driving dangerously, failing to stop after a collision where others were injured, and driving without insurance. He also faces charges of failing to provide a name and address or report to a police station following a crash. He is expected to appear before Medway Magistrates’ Court on the same day.

A 25-year-old woman from Walworth, Greater London, who was also arrested in connection with the incident has been released on bail pending further enquiries.
