A woman was taken to hospital in a neck-brace today after being injured in a two-car accident in Maidstone town centre.

She was driving a blue Volvo Estate along Wat Tyler Way towards King Street when she was involved in a collision with a silver Ford Focus existing from Padsole Lane next to Sainsburys supermarket and seeking to drive towards Upper Stone Street.

All three were shaken, but not seriously hurt.

Sgt Carl Howson said: “It looks worse than it is. Fortunately no-one was seriously injured.”
