A collision left commuters frustrated this morning as traffic moved at a snails pace after an accident.
Firefighters were called to the incident going London bound on the A2 between Gravesend and Bluewater at 6am, after a car and a heavy goods vehicle collided.
A man in his 30s was trapped in the car as a result but was cut out by firefighters.
Suffering from back and shoulder pains, he was taken to hospital by paramedics.
Police also attended the scene.
A Kent Fire and Rescue spokesman said: "Two fire engines were called to a collision involving a car and a lorry.
"Firefighters used hydraulic rescue equipment to release a man, thought to be in his 30's who was trapped in his vehicle.
"The roof of the car was removed, he was then placed on a spinal long board and handed into the care of the ambulance service."
