Flowers have been left at the scene where a man died in Dartford.
It is reported that at about 8.10am yesterday, a man in his 80s was hit by a car on Park Road.
The pedestrian, thought to be from Dartford, was pronounced dead at the scene, near a traffic island close to Downs Avenue.
His next of kin have been informed.
The driver of the car, a silver Volvo saloon, was taken to Darent Valley Hospital with injuries thought to be minor.
Park Road re-opened at 3.30pm after officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit carried out investigations.
Detective Sergeant Scott Lynch of the Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “I would urge anyone who witnessed the collision and has not yet spoken to an officer to get in touch as you might have information that could help with our investigation.
“I would also ask anyone who saw the car or the man, who was described as using a walking stick and wearing a flat cap, prior to the collision to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit.”
An air ambulance was seen landing in nearby Hesketh Park and today said injuries included his arms, legs and head.
Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact DS Scott Lynch at the Serious Collision Investigation Unit by calling 01622 798538.
