A man is fighting for his life after being knocked down by a taxi and dragged under the vehicle.
The 26-year-old, from Maidstone, was in the middle of Ashford's Station Road when he was hit early today.
Kent Police said CCTV images showed him unsteady as he tried to slow cars and get inside.
He was struck by the taxi at about 4.50am before being dragged along the road.
The man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Now crash investigators are appealing for two motorists, who were in front of the taxi and were approached by the man, to come forward.
Their cars - both travelling towards Ashford international station - were a people carrier, thought to be a Ford Galaxy, and a Peugeot 406 estate.
The injured man is slim, 6ft, has dark brown cropped hair and a beard. He was wearing a dark grey/black suit-style jacket and dark blue jeans.
It happened outside a cycle shop and near a bowling alley in Station Road, part of Ashford's ring road.
