Four people were taken this morning to hospital after a car crashed and burst into flames near Canterbury Garden Centre in Herne Common.
The driver, a woman in her 20s, suffered neck injuries while an 18-year-old man suffered head injuries and was for a time unconscious.
Both were taken to the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford.
Ambulance spokesman Richard Airey said: "We were called at 4.10am to reports of the crash in Busheyfield Road.
"We sent four ambulances and a car to the scene. All were walking wounded.
"One 18-year-old passenger had quite a nasty cut to his head and was briefly unconscious. The driver, a woman in her 20s, said she had neck injuries and pain in her shoulder."
Two other men also in the car were taken to hospital one to the William Harvey and the other to QEQM Hospital in Margate.
