Police Car and Vehicle Collision Causes Hours-Long Closure of Major Thoroughfare A2

A major thoroughfare was obstructed for three hours after a police car and another vehicle collided, causing a temporary road closure.

The incident occurred on the coastbound lane of the A2, just beyond the Darenth Interchange, at approximately 8:50 PM last night.

Authorities promptly shut down the A2 coastbound following the crash involving a police car and the other vehicle. Thankfully, no serious injuries were reported, although a roadside barrier was damaged.

Investigations are still ongoing to determine the cause of the collision. It is worth noting that the second vehicle involved was not being pursued by police.

At 9:30 PM, National Highways officially announced the road closure, and nearly four hours later, at around 1 AM this morning, they confirmed that the carriageway had been reopened.

According to a police spokesperson, “At approximately 8:50 PM on Friday, a police car collided with another vehicle on the A2 coastbound, just past the Darenth Interchange. To ensure the safety of all involved, the road was temporarily closed while the vehicles were recovered and the roadside barrier was repaired.”

Fortunately, there were no serious injuries reported in the incident, and authorities are still investigating the details surrounding the crash.
