Two Arrests Made Following Three-Car Collision on A2 Near Bluewater and Ebbsfleet Junctions Resulting in Serious Injuries and 15-Hour Road Closure

Police have made two arrests following a three-car collision on the A2 near the Bluewater and Ebbsfleet junctions. The incident, which occurred on Friday evening, resulted in one person being hospitalized in serious condition.

The east-bound carriageway of the A2 was closed for over 15 hours as a result of the crash, causing major disruptions for commuters and local residents. The collision involved a black Ford Fiesta, a blue Audi S3, and a blue MG HS.

According to reports, a passenger in the Fiesta had to be airlifted to a London hospital, while the driver and another passenger received treatment for their injuries and were later released. The driver of the Audi and his female passenger had fled the scene before authorities arrived.

The Kent Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit (SCIU) has launched an investigation into the incident. In a statement, they urged anyone with information or footage from the crash to come forward and assist with their inquiries.

The road was finally reopened the following day at 3pm, but the aftermath of the crash caused major traffic delays and chaos in the surrounding areas.

On February 20, a 35-year-old man from Bexleyheath and a 25-year-old woman from Walworth were arrested in connection with the collision and taken into custody. The SCIU is appealing for any additional witnesses or evidence to aid their investigation.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the SCIU appeals line or submit evidence through the public portal. The incident reference number is JW/LB/016/24.
