Witnesses are being sought after a driver was seriously injured in a crash involving two lorries on the M20 this morning.
The smash happened on the coast-bound entry slip road road from the M25 heading clockwise at the Swanley Interchange.
It led to long delays for commuters, with congestion on the M25 back to J2 for the Darenth Interchange. Police said the slip road reopened shortly before midday after an investigation.
Officers were called to the scene at about 5.45am and the air ambulance was also called.
Witnesses said the cab of one of the lorries had been badly damaged.
Police said the driver was taken to King's College Hospital, in London, by land ambulance with injuries thought to be serious.
Both lanes of the coast-bound entry slip road were closed due to recovery work and amid an investigation by the police Serious Collision Investigation Unit.
Motorists were advised to use the A2/M2 or use the M25 roundabout at J3 to join the M20.
Kent Highways advised motorists to allow extra time for their journey and consider using an alternative route before the road reopened.
Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to phone the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at Kent Police on 01622 798538.
