Warning sign as Kent Police close a road
The crash happened just before the Tonbridge slip road at around 8.30pm.
Police closed the road for eight hours as they dealt with the wreckage, just before the Tonbridge slip road.
Sgt Scott Lynch said: “Motorists need to slow down and keep their distance from each other, particularly when the weather makes driving hazardous.
"The wind and rain makes driving difficult at the best of times but surface water, which hasn’t had a chance to drain away, is compounding a dangerous situation.”
Anyone with information should call 01622 798 538.
