Three men were killed in a crash involving a car and a lorry near Dunkirk.
Police confirmed a black Mercedes collided with a parked truck on the A2 London-bound at around 4.30am.
It led to the road being closed for more than nine hours while officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit tried to piece together the exact circumstances.
A police spokesman said: "Three people who were travelling in the car, died at the scene. Their next of kin have been informed.
"A man suffered serious injuries and was taken to a London hospital."
Police, ambulance and fire crews were initially called to the scene and the London-bound lanes between the A28 near Harbledown and J7 of the M2, Brenley Corner remained shut until just before 2pm.
Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or if people have dashcam footage which may assist officers in their investigation.
Witnesses are asked to call the appeal line on 01622 798538, quoting reference SCIU/DM/008/18.
