Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident to come forward.

Det Sgt Scott Lynch from Kent Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: "This collision may have occurred nine years ago but we have been actively investigating it throughout that time.

"I would like to urge anyway who didn't come forward at the time and remembers the collision to come forward. They still may hold vital information."

Anyone with information can call the Kent Police's witness line on 01622 798538 quoting reference YY/007673/12.
