A lorry collided with a bus at a shopping centre earlier this morning.
The incident happened outside Hempstead Valley Shopping Centre in Gillingham just after 7am.
The Nu Venture bus was pulling into the pick-up point opposite the petrol station and the lorry was leaving the station forecourt.
A witness said it appeared as though the seven-ton lorry had gone the wrong way around the roundabout and hit the side of the bus.
A spokesman for Kent Police said: "Kent Police was called at 7.07am to reports a lorry had collided with a bus outside a petrol station in Hempstead Valley Shopping Centre.
"The bus driver was taken to Medway Maritime Hospital to be treated for what are believed to be minor injuries."
A spokesman for the South East Coast Ambulance Service said the driver of the bus, a man in his sixties, was treated for neck pain and taken to Medway hospital.
It is thought there was one passenger on board the bus, but they were not injured.
