A suspected drink-driver has been arrested after a pensioner was killed in a crash in Paddock Wood last night.
The 25-year-old man is being questioned on suspicion of drink driving and causing death by dangerous driving.
His orange Land Rover Freelander crashed with a 73-year-old local man's red Peugeot 406 car in Queen Street.
