Teenage moped rider hurt in crash that closes Canterbury Road in Ashford
A teenage moped rider was taken to hospital this morning after a crash with a car in Ashford.
The youngster was taken the William Harvey Hospital with a broken leg and a suspected fracture to his wrist.
The driver of the silver Ford was not injured.
Police and ambulances were called to the scene of the crash, between Magazine Road and the A20 Simone Weil Avenue, just after 8am.

A spokesman for the ambulance service said: "Secamb were called to a report of an RTC between a motorbike and a car at 8.10am.
"The RTC was in Canterbury Road, near the junction to Magazine Road. Two ambulances attended.

The road closure led to queuing traffic among rush hour commuters.
