Man arrested after fatal M20 crash

20 June 2011

A man has been arrested after a fatal crash on the M20 motorway in Kent.

The incident happened on Sunday at 9.50pm when a Ford Jeep collided with a Luton van on the London-bound carriageway at junction 11 near Sellindge.

A spokesman for Kent Police said the jeep overturned and a passenger was thrown from the vehicle.

Both the passenger and driver of the jeep were taken to hospital with serious head injuries. The driver, a 48-year-old man, died from his injuries earlier this morning.

A 32-year-old Polish national has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving.

Lane closures were put in place on the M20 overnight but the motorway has now fully reopened.

Witnesses are asked to contact the serious collision investigation unit at Kent Police on 01622 690690.
