Police cordoned off Broad Oak Road in Canterbury this afternoon, after a head-on crash.
The busy route was shut between Farleigh Road and Vauxhall Road while emergency crews dealt with the incident.
The cars, a Citroen and a Renault Scenic, collided head-on just before 11.30am.
A woman in her 30s was treated by ambulance crews before being taken to the QEQM Hospital in Margate with chest pains.
Another patient declined hospital treatment, and a third is still being assessed by paramedics at the scene.
Kent Highways warned drivers to expect delays and avoid the area.
The smashed up vehicles have since been moved to the side of the road and police have re-opened it to traffic.
Kent Police spokesman Jon Green says: "Two vehicles were involved in a head-on collision.
"SECAmb called Kent Police at 11.30am. The road was closed at the junction with Farleigh Road and Vauxhall Road for a short while. It was all clear by 12.18 pm."
It follows a two-car crash in the same road yesterday afternoon.
