Police Continue Investigation on A2 Crash as Victim Remains Hospitalized

A woman is still fighting for her life in a London hospital after a serious crash on the A2 near Bean and Northfleet nearly two weeks ago.

The incident occurred on February 16 at around 10:40pm, when a Ford Fiesta was involved in a collision with two other vehicles on the coastbound carriageway of the A2. The passenger of the Fiesta sustained critical injuries and has been hospitalized since the crash.

The driver and another passenger were also injured but have since been discharged. The crash caused the closure of the coastbound carriageway between the Bean Interchange and Northfleet, causing traffic chaos in the area.

Four days after the accident, two suspects were arrested in connection with the incident. Matthew Sparkes, a 35-year-old with no fixed address, has been charged with several offenses including causing serious injury by dangerous driving and driving without insurance. He is currently in custody and is set to appear in court on March 20.

A 25-year-old woman from Walworth, Greater London was also arrested but has been released on bail pending further investigation.

The road was closed for over 15 hours as Kent Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit conducted their investigation. The incident involved a black Ford Fiesta, a blue Audi S3, and a blue MG HS. The driver and passenger of the Audi S3 had left the scene before the police arrived.

Police are asking for any witnesses or anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage of the incident to come forward and speak to them. They can also submit any evidence through the public portal.
