Lanes of the M2 motorway have re-opened after a multi-vehicle smash.
The coastbound lanes were shut between Junction 3 for Chatham and Junction 4 for Gillingham. The four-vehicle accident happened just before 10am.
The Highways Agency said there were delays earlier of 10 minutes but traffic was reported to be at a standstill.
The four vehicles involved were removed to the hard shoulder and all lanes were reopened by 11.30am. The central barrier has been damaged and will need to be repaired.
Witnesses described seeing a car, which had hit the central reservation, facing the wrong way near to the Gillingham turn-off.
A spokesman for Kent Police said four cars are thought to be involved.
Kent Fire and Rescue said crews cut two women free from an Audi which had rolled over. They were taken to hospital.
Also involved was a group of young boys and an elderly couple but Paul Nash, watch manager at Medway Fire Station, said there were no major injuries.
Police, South East Coast Ambulance and Kent Fire and Rescue have been on the scene.
