The road was closed between the roundabout at St George's Place and the roundabout on Tourtel Road while officers from the serious collision investigation unit carried out an investigation. The road was reopened at 3.40am.

PC Claire Russell-Thomas said: "The collision happened near the city centre so it is likely other people would have been in the area at the time of the incident.

"I would urge anyone who saw the car before the collision or who witnessed the incident to contact police."

Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to phone the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at Kent Police by phoning 01622 798538.
