By Gerry Warren

Police have arrested a 40-year-old man on suspicion of dangerous driving, drug driving and failing to stop after a crash in which a motorcyclist was seriously injured.

It followed a collision on the A291 Canterbury Road shortly after 8am today which resulted in the rider being airlifted to King's College Hospital in London with multiple injuries.

It happened between Hicks Forstal Road and Sweechgate, closing the route in both directions for more than two hours.

Emergency services including an air ambulance were called to the scene and the road closure caused long delays in surrounding roads as drivers took alternative routes.

The arrested man from Herne Bay was later bailed pending further inquiries.

The rider, a man in his 40s also from Herne Bay remains in a serious condition in hospital.

The Serious Collision Investigation Unit is asking anyone who may have seen the collision, or either vehicle before the collision, to call 01622 798538 quoting AW/DW/37/18.
