Police, ambulance and fire crews were called to the scene, between the A2050 for Bridge and the A260 Old Dover Road.
Firefighters used hydraulic rescue equipment to free one person trapped in the wreckage, who was taken to the William Harvey Hospital.
Two others described as "walking wounded" were treated at the scene for minor injuries.
The road was completely closed in the aftermath, but one lane reopened in both directions at around 10.40am.
All lanes had reopened by 12.30pm and delays have since cleared.
