Witnesses are being sought after three pensioners were injured
in a serious head-on crash on the A21.
The smash between a car and a van closed a stretch of the road
near Pembury for more than six hours yesterday afternoon.
The male driver of the car, an 83-year-old man from Hadlow, was
airlifted to the Royal London Hospital, in Whitechapel, where he
remains in a serious condition.
His 78-year-old wife, a passenger in the same vehicle, was
also taken by air ambulance to King's College Hospital, London, for
treatment for serious injuries.
The only occupant of the van, a 70-year-old man from Hawkhurst,
was taken to The Tunbridge Wells Hospital, in Pembury, but has
since been released.
The crash between a blue Ford Focus and a white Mercedes
Veto van happened at just after 12.20pm.
Traffic was diverted onto the A26 while the cause of the
collision was investigated. The road reopened at 6.50pm.
Witnesses or anyone who stopped at the scene who are yet
to speak to police are asked to phone the Kent Police Serious
Collision Investigation Unit on 01622 798538, quoting 06-0521.
