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.
