A motorcyclist involved in a serious collision has died.
Fred McIlveen was travelling on a black motorcycle which was involved in a crash on Tonbridge Road, Maidstone, around 5.15am on Friday, October 13.
The 60-year-old's motorbike collided with a grey Volkswagen Polo on the carriageway heading out of Maidstone, close to the Vine Medical Centre, at the junction with Vine Mews.
He was taken to Kings College Hospital in London with serious injuries, and he sadly died on Wednesday, November 1.
Witnesses had reported that one of the vehicles may have been travelling the wrong way down this one-way stretch of the A26.
Flowers have been left close to the scene, and his family have issued a tribute to their "beloved Fred".
They said: "With a heavy heart we as a family are heartbroken that we have had to say goodbye to our beloved Fred.
"He was well known for his love of motorbikes and football, often going to watch Maidstone United.
"He will be remembered by everyone that knew him as a cheeky fun-loving man. Fred will be greatly missed.
"He passed away peacefully with his family beside him."
